#1 Susan Rice lied to America 5 times in one day right after the 9/11 Bengazi Al Qaeda murders of the Ambasador and two former Navy Seal heros which makes her the perfect phsycophant deserving a top position in Obama's anti-American regime.

#2 Thank you for confirming the origins of the Rice talking points. Rage on, oh brave Ateles.

#3 So where's his rage at the actual murder of someone?

#4 The interesting thing is the Obama administration's habit to put their cover stories to dual use.

Rice's confabulation was used as political ammunition to attack the 1st Amendment, just as the F&F cover story was used against the 2nd.

Maybe Nixon should have argued that the Watergate burglary was evidence of a massive crime wave that could only be countered by doing away with notions of due process or something.

#5 "The UN Ambassador had nothing to do with Benghazi" . . . uh, yeah, that's the point . . .

#6 "If Senator McCain and Senator Graham, and others want to go after somebody they should go after me,"

Take him up on the challenge but I doubt you will get anything from him. He says he knows nothing.

#7 didn't see that kind of emotion when America lost two good ex-SEAL's.

#8 ...that's because to him, they're little people, not part of the inner circle of the Inner Party.

#9 I don't think Rice lied. Ogabe has repeatedly referenced that she said exactly what was in the "briefing materials she was given." Today Petraeus said "someone," not on the intelligence side, deleted the line about AQ. So Rice was an ignorant, loyal mouthpiece, which explains Ogabe's indignance. What would be interesting to know is the identity of the person who removed the references to AQ.

#10 So Obgabe juts out the jaw and is POd? And he acts like he supports his team. Who cares whether or not he is POd and juts out the jaw? He does not have a good history of backing the team if Benghazi is what you get.

I'd like to know the answer to one or two questions: What was the CIA doing in Benghazi? Who hit them or who had them hit?

#11 RandomJD, I can't tell you how much I appreciate you bringing cool, lawyerly analysis to the various issues just now. Thank you.

#12 RandomJD, I too can see how Rice could be the cutout, the innocent mouthpiece with no direct connection to the intelligence community. She was just reporting what she had been given......plausible deniability at it's finest. If you challenge her, your a wymin hating racist!!!

#13 I've a feeling she'll end up in the White House rather than Foggy Bottom.

With her track record and foreign policy positions, there was going to be some heartburn in the Senate anyway regarding her confirmation. Now factor in her 'blame the video' tour...

Mr. Obama wants her around. The only way that'll happen, methinks, will be a position in the White House.

#15 Why thank you, TW. It's a relief to know I still appear to be rational, whilst despairingly drunk and watching in bug-eyed shock as my country crumbles a little more each day. I'm not sure why I bother, seeing as I no longer have any faith that anyone who deserves punishment will get it.
