    Susan Rice Is Unqualified To Be Secretary Of State​



    Benghazi Scandal:
    "Her meeting with GOP senators begs the question that if all she can do is read talking points handed to her by the White House then perhaps she should be the next White House press secretary."

    The above observation, courtesy of Richard Grenell, who served as spokesman for four U.S. Ambassadors to the U.N., is the flip side of our view that Susan Rice, who was sent out on five Sunday talk shows to explain Benghazi by a president who says she had "nothing to do with Benghazi," is as qualified to be the next secretary of state as a fellow parrot of the false narrative that the terrorist attack was caused by a video, current White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

    Her meeting with GOP Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte went as badly as her talk show audition for Hillary Clinton's replacement. She is clearly not ready for her close-up.

    Sen. Ayotte, R.-N.H., told CNN's Wolf Blitzer after the glorified meet-and-greet that Rice "misled the American public," and pledged to put a hold on Rice's nomination if it came to the Senate, at least until all of the questions surrounding Benghazi have been answered: Sen. Graham, R-South Carolina, has said, rightfully we believe, that Rice is "disconnected to reality" and disqualified from a "promotion" to secretary of state.

    We agree.

    After the meeting, the three senators issued a statement saying they were "disturbed by the administration's continued inability to answer even the most basic questions about the Benghazi attack and the administration's response."

    Some of those questions include why the Benghazi consulate was left unprotected despite its requests for additional security, why no rescue attempt was mounted during the seven-hour attack, and why the administration stuck with its false narrative after the facts were known that night that it was a terrorist attack.

    Rice at least once on her Sept. 16 road show explicitly stated that there was "no evidence" that the sacking of the Benghazi consulate was a deliberate terrorist act despite the fact that Ansar-al-Sharia had claimed credit as the attack was under way.

    As McCain has noted, "there were people who were survivors from the consulate who were interviewed two days later in Germany that said there was no mob."

    So the evidence is clear.

    "It was planned, definitely, it was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival," Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf, told CBS News' "Face The Nation" on Sept. 16 after Rice appeared saying exactly the opposite.

    a fleeting thought--

    Susan Rice is being 'rewarded'?

    Susan Collins/Maine, interviewed her today and is also perplexed. It sounded like she has been employed by ?? the State Dept and/or UN prior to this appointment. There were questions about an embassy in Africa--requests for security/defense that went unanswered. It seems that she was not directly responsible for this embassy. Collins concerns were not clarified from today's responses.

    As a 'person-on-the-street' I am left with the impression that this appointment has a hidden agenda. Great. Swell.

    I thought Hillary Clinton put in some long hours and hard work --so all of that is for naught?

    "I think, particularly in fairness to Ambassador Rice, there ought to be the widest public airing of what led to her statements and others in the administration particularly obviously if she's going to be nominated for secretary of state or some other high office," Lieberman said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

    Asked by host Candy Crowley whether he'd be an "automatic no" if President Barack Obama nominates Rice, Lieberman said he wouldn't be.

    "She's had a distinguished career up until now," Lieberman said. "Secondly, I don't know, I don't feel that I know exactly what she was told before she went on TV that Sunday morning, and I think we ought to find out before we decide on whether she's a good or bad public servant."

    She has proven that she is not qualified to be SOS, at the very least. We need to know what she knew, when did she know it, and who directed her to say what! The American people deserve that -we have FOUR DEAD AMERICANS INCLUDING OUR AMBASSADOR!!!

    Totally unfit morally!

    As I said before ... she should take a long vacation in Puerto Vallarta.

    She doesn't belong in politics.

    She was assistant SoS under Clinton, and approved BY THE SENATE for UN Secretary.
    Funny, they used to think she was well qualified. Amazing how getting your ass kicked in an election makes a political party crazy.
