Allen West: Rice Is "Asinine, Naive, Inept, Incompetent And Borderline Ignorant"
Real Clear Politics ^ | 9/17/12

Posted on 09/17/2012 7:10:12 AM PDT by Evil Slayer

Rep. ALLEN WEST (R-Fla.) on FOX News' Justice with Judge Jeanine Sunday night: Well, it's very simple. When I listened to the UN ambassador Susan Rice today several words came to mind: asinine, naive, inept, incompetent and borderline ignorant. Because when you understand that the Egyptian government, their intelligence services, put out a letter talking about the potential threat of an attack, uprisings, about a week before this. It was even printed in the Jerusalem Post on 9/11.

And anyhow, I can tell you Judge, being in the combat zones several times after 9/11, we were always on a higher state of security and alertness on 9/11. It should have been the exact same thing here. And for Susan Rice to say this was not a well coordinated attack -- first of all, I have to ask her what is her line of expertise in understanding what a well coordinated attack is because this was not happenstance, it was not coincidence. It was well planned, well coordinated and the president there in Libya confirms that.

There’s nothing “borderline” about her ignorance!

anyone who didnt know she was yet another affirmative action pick when she was selected by obama is just not paying attention

review her role and performance during Clinton's regime, as his special advisor for Africa

and her advice to not call the Rwanda ethnic slaughter a genocide because when Clinton did nothing to stop it (as was planned), calling it “genocide” would look bad in for his re-election polls

the best thing she has done for the US in the past 4 years is pretty much live the high life in NYC and keep her nails polished and her mouth shut while Cass Sunstein’s wife Samantha Power and other rabid liberals made US “policy” decisions for her office, like deciding the US should intervene in Libya without Congressional approval or oversight and that Israel should be accused of “
genocide” against the palestinians

If this were a Republican administration there would already be calls for an independent counsel, the news media would be having ‘Special Report’ segments about how warnings were ignored and people died as a consequence of incompetence, and some in Hollywood would already be thinking about the possibility of making this into a movie.

I absolutely LOVE Allen West. I pray that if Romney wins he is made Sec. of Defense. He will weed out the corrupt bootlickers in the Pentagon and get our military back on track. He is also the ONLY politician out there that knows Islam and is not afraid of it!

I would take issue with the good Colonel to this extent: Rice is an idiot, and was the sacrificial lamb sent out to take enemy fire this weekend. West shoudl have, IMHO, ignored her, and targeted his fire at Obama and Hillary.

That describes everyone in the Zero administration.
Probably a requirement to be hired.

Anyone know if this Rice is a State Department careerist or a political appointee?

Col. West calls this regime out, but good. They (regime members) must draw straws to see who gets to spew the spin - and protect the facade - each day.

The fact that the MSM gives these traitors cover is reprehensible.

The Egyptian government has the primary responsibility to protect embassy’s in their country. Their failure to do so despite knowing the potential for attack is an act of war.

Exactly, taking issue with Rice is like getting mad at Jay Carney. He/She is just issuing the statement she was ordered to read to keep the spin going. She has a vested interest in keeping a cushy job and hobnobbing with the elite Manhatten cocktail crowd.

They think they could get away with their usual media cover. Not going to work in an international incident where destabilization threatens the world. Guess they weren’t expecting the foreign press to do its job.

Maybe she's like Al Sharpton who wants people to think he went to divinity school and got a degree. Instead, he was "ordained" at age 10 by a DC preacher and perpetuated the lie every since. (So has Jesse Jackson.) Maybe Rice got her degree with two box tops and $5 from some website.

As a member of The Judge Advocate General’s Corps, I take issue with your statement. We don’t make policy, we apply the Constitution and the properly implemented rules and regulations (NOT implemented by us, implemented by the Executive Branch General Counsels and/or the Congress) of the military services. We. Don’t. Cover. Up. Hell, we got RID of a TJAG (Fiscus) and a just-about-GO (Mike Murphy) when their perfidy was discovered. Your statement is ignorant and incorrect.

Colonel, USAFR

West did not run for president for a very good reason, he saw no reason to get slaughtered and accomplish nothing. He appears to be much more aware of political realities than those believing he has (at this time) any shot at the nomination.

Sorry, but this is wrong. No one can be this divorced from reality and so completely incompetent.

No. This is more sinister. This is being done ON PURPOSE.

This is the Party line. This is the narrative. Repeat, repeat, repeat until the Masses believe the Big Lie.

This isn't stupidity on display... It's treason.

Why did they send Susan Rice to defend Hildebeast.

It seems that Rice was sent on a fool's mission.

This is the responsibility of Hillary and her failed Foreign Policy.

Are you familiar with COIN? There is nothing sinister or conspiratorial about it, these public servants actually believe assimilation can occur with a counter-hegemonic force.

This may be their end goal, but Party operatives pushing the Lie over and over again should never be assumed to be "stupid" or just plain old ignorant.

Be it Agenda 21 or simple local power mongering... They are giving outright aid and comfort to our Countries declared enemies.

As I said, treason.

Hillary is fully responsible for U.S. Foreign Policy.

She wanted the Title, thus she assumes the responsibility.

Rice is not responsibility for the operation of Embassies and Consulates.

I've been thinking along a similar line.

Blaming all this unrest and violence on an obscure, amature film nobody had seen, it almost appears to be another Obama Administration "Fast & Furious" operation only targeting the First Amendment instead of the Second.
