Susan Rice has a history of lying no matter how obvious the truth and even when she is caught. It is a disgrace that this woman represents the United States.
Obviously, Susan Rice lied about getting rid of Syria’s chemical weapons when she told NPR host Rachel Martin that this was “not something we’re prepared to allow to persist”, that it “didn’t necessitate the use of force”, and ” We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”
Syria’s Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his people on several occasions, including this month. Men, women and children, 72 at least are now dead. Syrians described bombs falling from the sky. There is no doubt Assad did it.
If you remember, Barack Obama allowed the redline to be crossed the first time Assad used WMDs, and in September 2013, John Kerry, speaking at a press conference in the UK, said there would be a U.S. attack and it would be an “unbelievably small,” limited attack on Syria. John McCain called the comments “unbelievably unhelpful.”
Even the unbelievably small attack never occurred because the Obama administration, working with Russia of all people, pretended they destroyed most of Assad’s chemical weapons. Even the administration didn’t claim all. Rice did.
This video of the March attack is graphic and tragic.
Benghazi was another blot on the American character in many ways by many people, but it was synched when Susan Rice went out to lie about it to the world.
After Rice lied on five consecutive Sunday News shows about Benghazi, she said she had no regrets about it.
Serving as National Security Advisor at the time, she told CBS in a ’60 minutes’ interview in December 2013, “I don’t have time to think about a false controversy” when she was asked about Benghazi.
Rice’s bad advice on national security began early in her career. In 1996, it was Susan Rice as the Clinton National Security Council’s senior director for African affairs, who convinced the Clinton White House to refuse a Sudanese offer to turn al Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden over to the United States.
She rose through the ranks as a flatterer of Clintons and Obamas and an enemy of Israel.
Susan Rice as National Security Advisor under Obama, played a critical role in the Iran nuclear deal, another botched experiment.
Upon the release of deserter Bowe Bergdahl, she said it is a “joyous day”. She also said he served with “honor and distinction”, doubling down the next day in response to a negative reaction from the press to her comments.
She said Bergdahl paid the price but the point is “he’s back” and will be back with his family. As an aside, he’s not back with his family and refuses to speak with them.
Now we know she unmasked individuals connected to Trump, she and at least one other person. The unmasking was not only of General Flynn and it was done many times.
The Washington Times quoted Michael Doran, a former National Security Council (NSC) senior director, who was shocked at the enormity of what the administration had purportedly done, telling a reporter they had accessed “a stream of information that was supposed to be hermetically sealed from politics and the Obama administration found a way to blow a hole in the wall.”
Mr. Doran’s shock was echoed in the words of retired Col. James Waurishuk, former NSC aide and deputy director of U.S. Central Command, who told the Daily Caller, “This is really, really serious stuff.”
