    Likely this has already been posted, my apologies. I'm curious though on reaction from right and left.

    Sen. Kelly Ayotte takes the baton from Lieberman - Right Turn - The Washington Post

    So your complaint is that Rice didn't take it upon herself to de-classify the classified portion of the information and make it public?

    geez

    Obama lied about a terrorist attack

    He told Rice to lie

    He had the CIA try to cover it up

    That's it.

    Nothing more

    Yeah. She immorally stayed within legal bounds. The DNI said HE changed the release and is responsible but Ayotte and wingnuts don't comprende that.

    Go figure.

    Actually if she knew and chose 3 times to LIE to the American people we have a problem. IF it was classified she should not have lied about what happened. Telling us that it was a spontaneous riot related to the movie when she knew it was a preplanned terror attack is a LIE. Telling the American people TWICE that AQ was decimated when the 911 attack was AQ was LYING to the American people.

    Pretty simple concept.

    Actually since she knew the truth she could have chosen NOT to lie about it. 3 times.

    No, but if this true ;

    She however continued, “But as part of her responsibilities she receives daily intelligence briefings and in fact got them 6 days a week.” That classified intelligence included the phrase later deleted from the unclassified talking points that “individuals with ties to Al Qaeda were involved in the attacks.” Rice noted that not only did she leave that out, but that on Meet the Press and Face the Nation, ”She also made the statement Al Qaeda had been decimated....


    why did she say something absolutely contrary to what she knew to be true?

    I have been giving her the benefit of the doubt, that she just repeated what the repot they gave her said, fine, but if her daily briefing , not the report but that briefing said what ayotte says it did, well?

    That is their JOB. That is what our intelligence services get paid to do....they are the experts. If they wouldn't declassify and deliberately chose the word "extremists" rather than "terrorists" I am fine and dandy with that.
