In fairness – after going on five Sunday talk shows to spout the Regime’s phony cover story – what else is she gonna do? Admit it was all a huge lie to deflect from the ugly truth that al Qaeda was not “on the run” in 2012, but “on the offensive?”
Still, this is pathetic, and it inspired John McCain to burst out in derisive laughter when he saw it.
National Security Adviser Susan Rice says she has no regrets about her Sunday show appearances where she peddled the false talking point that the Benghazi terrorist attack was a spontaneous reaction to a video.
Actually Miss, what you peddled on the Sunday talk shows was not the best you had at the moment, and contrary to your assertions, your bogus narrative has not been validated. Your “best information” defense has in fact been, invalidated. We know the White House knew, okay already?
The only question is whether Rice was acting as an unknowing stooge at the time, or a willing participant in the subterfuge. There is no question of what she currently is doing.
Oh – and kudos to Meet the Depressed host, David Gregory who did such a splendid job holding Rice’s feet to the fire, there. Always nice to see a hard-nosed journalist doing his part to keep a Washington power broker honest with a few tough follow up questions. What’s that you say? There wasn’t a followup question to that obvious lie? Wow. (The FCC seen nodding in approval.) NBC knows what its audience’s “critical information needs” are – and the truth about Benghazi – or any of the Regime’s other scandals are not among them.
Here’s John McCain’s “almost speechless” response to Rice’s BS on CBS, this morning:
Fox News’ “Political insiders”, Pat Caddell, Doug Schoen, John LeBoutillier with Harris Faulkner talked about Rice’s appearance on NBC still peddling what Caddell called “the greatest lie of my lifetime.”
LeBoutillier saw the appearance as an indication that the Regime is still getting away with the cover-up, and took the opportunity to repeat what all the insiders have been calling for – a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi.
(By the way, I don’t agree that a Select Committee would be some kind of panacea – I think the multiple House hearings have actually done an adequate job rooting out the truth, myself. A Select Committee would remove some of the most effective House Oversight members (like Gowdy and Chaffetz) from involvement because ranking members (dead wood) would be appointed to the committee. The investigation is taking time because we’re dealing with a bunch of shameless, lying, stonewalling, Fifth Amendment-pleading, ends-justify-the-means, Alinsky trained corruptocrats. As Darrell Issa has said, “the fact is, I have all the same powers and have used the same authorities as a Select Committee would use. This administration is slow.”)
Anyway, LeBoutillier was adamant. He said, “We have a 180 members of the House Republican Conference who have called for a Select Committee to finaally get to the bottom of Benghazi. They need to get together tomorrow, and they need to tell Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy, you’ve got one day to appoint the Committee, and if you will not do it, we’re throwing all of you out of the leadership….”
The Rice discussion starts 6:35 minutes in…
