Skip to comments.Susan Rice will not be nominated for Secretary of State

After the 9/11/2012 murders of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, the Obama Administration was in full covereup mode. They required that someone go on five 9/16/2012 Sunday talk shows to make the case that our diplomats had died because of a YouTube video and not a terrorist attack.
The Administration did not want to pick an individual familiar with any aspect of Benghazi. He or she would have been subjected to challenging questioning (?) beginning with, "What did you know and when did you know it?"
So United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice was trotted out. Her relatively clean hands allowed her to present a false narrative and get away with it. Today, anyone with a lick of sense knows that she (however innocent) was the carrier of the YouTube lie.
President Obama will not even nominate Susan Rice for the position of Secretary of State for the simple reason that at the confirmation hearing, she would be grilled under oath about who briefed her (provided her with the YouTube lie) before her Sunday talk show appearances, the exact conditions of the briefing, and the extent to which she suspected that she had been chosen to propagate a lie. Her testimony would at the very least juice the scandal by sparking interest in the names of the officials who provided her with the lie and the names of the superiors who approved it.
She has been floated as a possible Secretary of State to give the President the opportunity to tar her critics as racists and sexists and to conceal the fact that she will not be nominated.

We’ll see but I think this is incorrect. The idiot in chief will nominate her.
she won’t be nominated...Obama wants a black mail in that position....oops...looks like I made a pun...
I agree - Obummer thinks he can do whatever he wants. The other fallacy in this article is “she would be grilled under oath about....” since when has being under oath ever meant anything to this crowd. They couldn’t tell the truth if JC himself were standing in front of them.
Obama acted tough during that news contest, but he won’t nominate her. Obama made the conscience decision to discard her and her career the day he asked her to spread the lies about the YouTube video. All his bravado was to have a bunch of female Obamaite Congresswomen carry the torch from then on. He won’t mention it again. He has no problem using those around or beneath him to further his agenda. Goodbye Ms.Rice!
I think the author is right. She'd have to testify under oath in her confirmation hearings about who sent her out with the ridiculous video story, and Obama doesn't want to risk that.
Not Goodbye...good riddance.
She was fibbing then.
She’ll fib again.
She is a black women who was used by a half black president. It will be interesting to see what she does.
How this ends up will be a sign of whether they’ve drugged him enough to at times offset his malignant narcissism. If not, he’ll nominate her just as a stick in everyone’s eye.
I would imagine by now that some of his white, male thugs are getting po'd that women are getting jobs that OBVIOUSLY belong to them.
There might be more legal implications under oath in a confirmation hearing. She’s obviously not going to take the blame herself and the regime has run out of other people willing to accept the blame (although they may have a long shot if Hillary never comes back to the US...).
And I can’t believe she’d get away with saying that she just didn’t know why she said it! Something just came over her. Poor little her. That might be a bit much even for our ever-credulous senators.
Not sure on this one. Obama used her up, but it would seem consistent for him to think he could kill the sacrificial lamb and have it to.
If Barky does nominate her, look for some real fireworks.
Anyone who criticizes Susan Rice is a bigot and a sexist. /s
