The U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, who found time to go on five different Sunday talk shows a week ago to lie about the Benghazi attack, blew off the Israeli Ambassador Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday at the U.N. General Assembly in New York City. She decided to have lunch with Hillary and some foreign ministers rather than listen to his boring ol’ speech about containing Iranian nukes..
Greta van Susteren had John Bolton on her show, On the Record, last night to discuss the slight.

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich noted:
This move by Rice came just days after President Obama blew Netanyahu off so he could go party with Jay-Z, Beyonce, the ladies from The View and David Letterman.
The CNN blog is reporting that Romney and Obama will speak with Netanyahu, Friday:
President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will separately speak on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday.
The conversations come one day after the Israeli leader made a definitive statement at the United Nations General Assembly Thursday, urging the international community to draw a “clear red line” with Iran over its suspected nuclear development program.
Obama could easily have made room in his schedule to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, yesterday, as he only had one campaign event in Virginia Beach, Virginia, scheduled.
Keith Koffler reported yesterday, that the trip would only take a few hours out of his day, but he delegated the meeting with Netanyahu to Clinton instead.
Others who have found room in their schedule to meet with Netanyahu are Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper – who recently threw all of Iran’s diplomats out of his country – and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The White House, which has been under fire for ducking Netanyahu, has not ruled out a meeting, and may in the end bow to pressure to schedule one. Netanyahu is in the United States until Saturday night.
Well, at least the Prime Minister, whose country may soon be going to war with Iran, rates a phone call from the busy campaigner in Chief. But I strongly suspect he only scheduled the phone call after he heard Romney would be speaking to him by phone.
