Looking angry as usual, President Obama admitted in today’s press conference that he was the one who requested Susan Rice to appear on the Sunday news shows, 9/14, with the best information she had at the time. President Obama, speaking with plausible deniability, did not say he gave her the misinformation.
President Obama knew what transpired in real time. He certainly knew it was not related to a movie trailer within 24 hours, well before the 14th.
President Obama said to not go after the exemplary Susan Rice because “she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her[notice he said HER] best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her…they should go after me…”
Lindsey Graham responded and said he will be going after him.
In this segment of President Obama’s press conference, he admits he sent Susan Rice to speak on the Sunday News Shows with the “intelligence that had been provided to her.” Either she was sent by the White House with misinformation knowingly or unknowingly.
Obama then said she had nothing to do with Benghazi!!! So why did he send her? So people wouldn’t get to the real truth???
He now thinks four Americans being killed is a real problem, but he used to think it was a “bump in the road.”
Graham shot back with a paper statement responding to Obama’s press conference/campaign speech today:
“Mr. President, don’t think for one minute I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi. I think you failed as Commander in Chief before, during, and after the attack,” he said.
Graham previously said:
“This is about the role she played around four dead Americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration — and she’s the point person — is so disconnected to reality, I don’t trust her,” said Graham. “And the reason I don’t trust her is because I think she knew better, and if she didn’t know better, she shouldn’t be the voice of America.”
Senator Graham had being arguing for a special committee to investigate the aftermath of the Benghazi attack and have that committee work with the three US Senate committees currently conducting oversight.
Susan Rice spread misinformation on the Sunday News Shows in lieu of Hillary Clinton or another State Department official who would have been the more logical to appear on the Sunday Shows.
As an aside, did you notice that when Hillary Clinton appeared to spread the tale about the video, President Obama was by her side? I wouldn’t doubt that Hillary said I won’t say that unless you’re next to me.
