    Susan Rice defends Benghazi interviews on 60 Minutes

    I don’t have time to think about the false controversy,” Rice said. “In the midst of all of swirl about things like talking points, the administration has been working very, very hard across the globe to review our security of our embassies and our facilities. That’s what we ought to be focused on.”

    CBS host Lesley Stahl pressed on whether Rice ever wished she hadn’t taken the interviews.
    “If you hadn’t taken those interviews, I’d be calling you madam secretary,” Stahl said.

    You can call me Susan,” Rice shot back, ending questions on the incident for which the former U.N. ambassador has become most known

    arrogant hubris, much like Hilary testimony where she throws up her hands and the famous "what does it matter" line.

    They were caught lying, and they just can't admit it, so they dissemble - isn't that correct "Susan"

    Yep. Like sending 150 (more) troops to evacuate the US folks from South Sudan. Who would have guessed, in advance, that fledgling nation would have had any security problems?

    read the link:
    Rice said she had filled in willingly because of the then-secretary of state’s particularly “painful” and “stressful” week

    You know, one of the things the scandalmongers never like to talk about is how there really were worldwide protests against the video on that day.

    Name one protest we were focused on instead of Benghazi, let alone that such efforts precluded us from doing anything in Benghazi.

    Good grief. Talk about lame.

    Bengazi was unique. what you mention was a deliberate attempt to conflate other protests, into a terrorist atack in Bengazi.

    The US knew the next day, yet chose to go with the"video did it line"
    By September 2011, Western counterterrorism officials had become increasingly concerned with the role Islamic radicals were playing in the revolt in Libya, and worried the weapons acquired by them during the war would be used in future terrorist attacks

    Re: Susan Rice defends Benghazi interviews on 60 Minutes

    I'm with Susan. When I'm too busy to even think about something, I find that an appearance on 60 minutes to explain to people that I'm simply to busy for such things can be a HUGE timesaver.
