UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, defended on Wednesday her remarks after a September attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to the North African nation.

"When discussing the attacks against our facilities in Benghazi I relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community," Rice told reporters at the United Nations.

"I made clear that the information provided to me was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers," said Rice

Indeed, she hit us over the head with the idea that it was the video. Not that this a just a preliminary conclusion, but the definite one. Else why would Obama still be going with this ten days later?

Rice is a liar. And I don’t care what color her skin tone is or what her genitals look like. She’s still a liar.

I can believe she said what she was told to say./

Perhaps they told her it was the Video , and she was stupid enough to believe it. I can believe that.

Perhaps she was mislead, It is easy to mislead someone who wants to believe.

If she truly believed it was the Video, it is certifiable evidence of her incompetence.

I find it ironic that Rice now claims bad info from the intelligence community as the excuse and the Dims are saying the critics are trying to lynch her over that. But remember the phrase “Bush lied and people died”. That was from these same idiot Dims about what Bush and Powell said about Irag. Same type of situation, same excuse, same everything but now there is a black, democratic woman cliaming the excuse.

DEAR CONGRESS,

Don't QUOTE what she said, SHOW THE VIDEO SNIPPETS OF ALL 5 SUNDAY MORNING NEWS PROGRAMS BEFORE HER TESTIMONY. There was a certain 'certainty' in her voice that cannot be captured by merely quoting what she said before she testifies..

GOT IT, CONGRESS? I suppose we'll find out if her testimony is a dog and pony show.

We need to look at the known facts here. The CIA and therefore the president knew within a couple hours this was terrorism. 5 days later this POS lied to the American people on several different nation wide TV programs. The lies were intentional, planned, and intended to deflect all blame from the other POS in the white house.
Lies stated repeatedly in public and due to preliminary stupidity. Sooner or later they all are going to be held accountable for their crimes.

So now she’s calling Petraeus a liar and Zippy himself said she didn’t know anything about Benghazi, and he sent her out there. She’s a useful idiot.

And blaming the video actually caused Muslims to become even more agitated. Then look what happened next, Hamas drastically increased rocket fire on Israel.

We have come full circle. Back to “ information provided to me... by the intelligence community.”

That’s their story and they are sticking to it.

BTW, here is Issa? I haven’t heard from him since the hearings.

In other words, “I was just carrying the water for nobama. Get off my back. I didn’t ‘know’ I was lying.”

Yeah, right sweetie.

I have lost count of all the lies about Benghazi

Exactly what nobama and his minions are hoping for. Obfuscation is the name of the game. And today people are so dumbed down (present company excepted, of course :) that it takes very little to be effective.

98% of Benghazi-gate is smoke, mirrors, bread and circuses. The remaining 2% are crimes, corruption and treasonous activities.

Obama’s all aboutopenness when it comes to granting unprecedented and unwise civilian/hollywood access to special forces facilities to make a movie glorifying himself, but the story is quite different when it comes to transparency about his administration’s decision to leave Americans undefended for months and finally abandoning them alone to die in a terrorist attack that was actually foreseen by the victims.

JUNE 15, 2011 : ( DPTY NAT’L SEC. ADVISOR FOR SC EMAILS ASST SECDEF FOR PA DOUG WILSON, CIA DIR. OF PA GEORGE LITTLE & DPTY WH PS JAIME SMITH-——— see “ZERO DARK THIRTY” MOVIE /OBAMA 2012 CAMPAIGN CASE) According to a June 15, 2011, email from Benjamin Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, to then Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Doug Wilson, then-CIA Director of Public Affairs George Little, and Deputy White House Press Secretary Jaime Smith, the Obama White House was intent on “trying to have visibility into the UBL (Usama bin Laden) projects.”
“…we are trying to have visibility into the UBL projects and this is likely the most high profile one. Would like to have whatever group is going around in here at the WH [White House] to get a sense of what they’re doing / what cooperation they’re seeking.

JUNE 7, 2011 : (E-MAIL EXCHANGE INVOLVING CIA SPOKESPERSON -——— CIA DIRECTOR PANETTA, “ZERO DARK THIRTY” MOVIE /OBAMA 2012 CAMPAIGN CASE) According to e-mail exchange on June 7, 2011, CIA spokesperson Marie E. Harf openly discussed providing preferential treatment to the Boal/Bigelow project over others related to the bin Laden killing: “I know we don’t pick favorites but it makes sense to get behind a winning horse…Mark and Kathryn’s movie is going to be the first and the biggest.

Tying these people down to anything they said is like nailing jello to the wall.

Unfortunately thanks of the foolishness of the American people we have them for the next 4 years.

Intelligence?

The UN is a hot bed of hatred by other third world dictatorships (America quickly become third world banana republic with the banana sitting in the oval orifice) directed mainly at the USA and Israel.

The CIA has become a pflummixed (Valerie Pflume, noted CIA operative for which Scooter Libby went to the slammer for nothing!) leftist think tank. The rest of this so-called intelligence and conglomerated agencies that are supposed to protect CONUS are utterly ridiculous and a detriment to us all.
