I admit that before Benghazi – I had never heard Susan Rice’s name. One reason for that could be because there wasn’t anything big and important in the news about the UN. That isn’t a glowing recommendation about her performance over the last four years.
Many of us saw the Obama press conference where he was “outraged” that people were questioning Susan Rice’s ability and qualifications to be Secretary of State.
Seems to me it would be nice to see him “outraged” about an Ambassador and 3 service men who were killed in Benghazi by terrorists.
Seems to me he should be “outraged” that requests for increased security were denied repeatedly.
Seems to me he should be “outraged” that someone in the administration changed the talking points to not protect national security, but in turn they were changed in a way that served to mislead the American people.
Just for a few things that should stir that kind of outrage in the president.
What do you think about his feigned outrage – and yes, I am drawing the conclusion that his actions at the press conference were a show for the cameras.
I just saw an interview with Richard Grenell – who was the spokesman for the UN Ambassador – so he is aware of the duties and responsibilities of her job. That puts him in a special position to critique her work at the UN.
Here is the intro and a link to the article. Feel free to share your thoughts.
30 REASONS WHY SUSAN RICE SHOULDN’T BE SECRETARY OF STATE
Ambassador Susan Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi, as President Obama told us, but she appeared on five Sunday political talk shows anyway. On those shows, Rice mouthed talking points that weren’t true. We now know that the talking points did not match the intel reports, which she had complete access to. While the national media debates whether or not she knowingly mislead the public on the Sunday shows, her failings and shortcomings before the Benghazi terrorist attacks have not received the attention they deserve.
Here are 30 reasons (that have nothing to do with Benghazi) why Susan Rice should not get a promotion.
1. failed to call an emergency meeting of the Security Council after the 2010 Haiti earthquake
2. skipped the Security Council debate and vote to add new UN Peacekeepers in Haiti after the earthquake
3. led the US during the most inactive Security Council since 1991 during her first year as Ambassador
4. held her first press conference with the UN Secretary General on the pressing international issue of texting while driving
5. failed to speak out when Col. Gaddafi’s Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Commission
6. waited 17 months before voting on the one and only UN resolution on Iran passed during her tenure
