U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice: ‘Spontaneous’ Libya Attack Was Prompted by ‘Hateful & Offensive Video’ | Video | TheBlaze.com She doesn't even get that it was used as a cover. “This is a response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world,” Rice said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.“ ”Obviously our view is that there is absolutely no excuse for violence and what has happened is condemnable. But this is a spontaneous reaction to a video and it’s not dissimilar but perhaps on a slightly larger scale than what we have seen in the past with the [Salman Rushdie's novel] ‘Satanic Verses’, with the [2006 Danish newspaper] cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad.” Even clueless McCain gets it. "Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, also said on CBS he doesn’t buy the line that what happened in Libya was spontaneous." “Most people don’t bring rocket-propelled grenades and heavy weapons to a demonstration,” he said. “That was an act of terror. And for anyone to disagree with that fundamental fact I think is really ignorant of the facts.” The last part of the sentence sums up the entire administration.
