U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, President Obama’s designated fall gal for the Benghazi debacle, trooped over to the Senate to meet with three of her top critics today. It did not go well.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): “Bottom line, I’m more disturbed now than I was before, The 16 September explanation about how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya, by Ambassador Rice, I think, does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong.”
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ): “We are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn’t get concerning evidence that was overwhelming leading up to the attack on our consulate.”
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH): “It’s certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with ties to al Qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy, and clearly the impression that was given, the information given to the American people, was wrong.”
Well, okay, but what do those two old white guys and Honorary Old White Guy Kelly Ayotte know? They’re just a pack of racists and sexists. There is no legitimate criticism of Susan Rice. She’s a helpless naif who spouted ridiculous propaganda fed to her by still-mysterious forces within the intelligence community, after they nefariously edited the talking points prepared by then-CIA Director and biographer magnet David Petraeus, to remove all mention of the blindingly obvious true nature of the Benghazi attack. This left poor Ambassador Rice sputtering about a completely phantasmal “spontaneous video protest” that absolutely no one who knew anything about the consulate attack believed for a moment. Her gullibility makes her an excellent choice for Secretary of State. If you disagree, you’re no different than Merle the Evil Redneck from “The Walking Dead.”
