Susan Rice’s Talking Points
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/17/2012 5:23:38 AM

At his first press conference after being elected to a second term, President Barack Obama did everything he could to avoid directly answering the difficult questions on the growing scandal about his administration’s handling of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. But in so doing, the president inadvertently told us quite a bit.At one point he said: “And we’re after an election now. I think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in Benghazi, and I’m happy to cooperate in any ways that Congress wants.”

These people systematically leaking the truth out does nothing to bring 4 people back to life or change the left´s thinking on it´s muslim outreach.

Obama´s smooth talking this now so he can get Rice confirmed without a hassle.The cacking old hens in the House are saying this is racist,sexist and political to oppose Rice.

These old bags see nothing wrong with a woman being marched on TV to tell an intentional lie,they all admit now.

Right. Couldn´t possibly "find out exactly what happened" while pulling the wool over the nation´s eyes, could he?

Since, by The Won´s own declaration, Rice had "nothing to do with Benghazi," why was she trotted out to (count them) five Sunday political news shows? Because Hillary wouldn´t go? Because Petraeus wouldn´t go? Because not even Panetta would go?

And now we learn that the talking points had been scrubbed of any mention of terrorism and specifically, AQ?

There is something unseemly about the tone of The Won´s defense of Rice. Just saying.

Pay attention, everyone. Steve Hayes is the best actual journalist in the Capitol. "Woodstein" all in one; emphasis on "actual" journalist, as opposed to the collective official excuse-makers in the so-called "news" biz.

I believe they´re counting on "truth fatigue from a thousand drips". They know that indisputable evidence exists showing Obama knew the circumstances and purposely sent Rice out with a false set of talking points. So they´re preemptively leaking a few tidbits at a time, knowing that fatigue eventually sets in and the MSM moves on to other stories.

Stephen - this is a rational explanation regarding the talking points which were clearly diluted for political purposes in the run-up to the election. But what is missing is why Petreaus himself blamed the "video" in his first briefing to Congress in September.

Obama lied and watched our citizens die at Benghazi. Susan Rice intentionally lied about Benghazi.

We re-elected the sleaziest, worst president our Nation has ever seen, so believing he and the democrats cheated to get re-elected is an easy analysis of the situation. Or we have a LOT of the dumbest people on this planet living among us...

I believe that the kardashian voters just do not care. And Susan Rice is utterly charmless, so those democratic hags in congress, yesterday, had to mount a 1950s defense of a poor woman who was being picked on by mean men, because she was female and black.
Such a defense tells the lie of the women´s movement. Don´t open that door for the woman, you pig of a man. that´s an insult to her and to all women.
But when a woman messes up, as Rice did, attack the men who say anything negative about her. She is helpless, don´t you know?

As for why Susan Rice, #7 correctly points out why she was their perfect choice...female, black, and clueless. They calculated (correctly) that any criticism of her or what she falsely presented could and would be immediately defended by various groups as sexist, racist, and mean-spirited (i.e., McCainist). It even gave Obama an opportunity to hermaphrodite up by swinging his man purse at the impudent questioning of her choice.

Re poster #5: "But what is missing is why Petreaus himself blamed the ´video´ in his first briefing to Congress in September."

The hearing was behind closed doors and I bet that question was asked. The answer may well be so explosive that no one wanted to publicly reveal it... yet.

I´m not original in this thought, but I´ll point it out again: Obama was far more indignant at the impudent questioning of his poor little ambassador-lady (uh - black - ambassador-lady, that is), than he was at the MURDER of his own (gay white) Ambassador in a hell-hole by islamist orcs.

Ah, the ´war on women´ proceeds apace.

She´s black and a woman -- SO -- she doesn´t have to take responsibility for her actions. She´s an affirmative action U.N. ambassador.

Com´on stop picking on her. Why should she have to actually do her job. She doesn´t know better -- she´s black -- or so the blackrepresentative from Michigan said....

Poor me -- I didn´t know better. I should be given a bigger job because I´m black..and a woman....

Can any of these 3 trace their roots back to slavery which ended 1 1/2 centuries ago?

I think Obama is indignant over Rice because by attacking her stupid statements he feels he is being attacked (and rightfully so). This entire story points to the juvenile thinking of Obama and the attempt of covering his own imcompetence with lies and excuses. Why is he unable to visualize his outrage over Rice (because he is defending himself) tells the story because there has been no outrage over the deaths of 4 Americans?

And if they could, #14? Big whoop!

As said in a thread above the big question is not the changing of talking points, but why was layer after layer of security removed each time the consulate was previously attacked? And why was the ambassador that day? And why was the staff still there after all other diplomats had fled?

This is far from being resolved. There are at least 30 staff members from whom we have not heard. What do they know and where are they being secluded to be de-briefed?

My take on Petraus´ first appearance to cite the "video" was an ´or else´ situation. Say it was the "video" or else we will spill the beans about your ´Broadwell´ affair. Perhaps a niggling conscience then made him decide to fess up to the affair in his reason for resigning from the CIA. Blackmail???
Why had the Drone been dispatched to Benghazi? For the Drone´s appearance as early in the evening it had to have been sent hours before the assassination. Why?? Who ordered it to cover Benghazi? Lots of unanswered questions.

Barack Obama has been airbrushing Islamist terrorists out of just about every obvious terrorist event that has occurred since he was elected. This is just another instance of that.

Remember the Fort Hood murders by a Muslim who was shouting in Arabic "god is great" as he was performing his personal jihad against American soldiers. Following that, the politically correct Obama crew, both military and civilian, denied that the murders were an act of terrorism, and still refers to the incident as "workplace violence". It looks like the majority of American voters go along with that!

FTA- " The staffer said Petraeus testified that he allowed other agencies to alter the talking points
as they saw fit without asking for final review, to get them out quickly.”
Petraeus is looking shadier every day.
And just as corrupt as the rest of the Obama Administration.
It´s telling that not a single member of the gerbil media has asked Obama-exactly what time were you notified
and what specifically did you do ?
And how did you spend the evening ?
Other than going to bed early.
It´s pretty obvious by all the wishy washy and lawyerly
answers from Carney and Barry,
that he did not convene a meeting of the NSC
( except for the
military , it consists of the usual bozos like Rice, Biden ,Timmy Geithner, Panetta , Hillary , Petreaus , Jay Z , Beyonce and possibly Jarrett and Holder ) and didn´t consider
the attack and the deaths to be any big deal.
Obama gave more tributes to Michael Jackson than he has to the four dead Americans.
Ed Henry of FOX began asking Barry a tough question, but , then wavered and weakened by the end.
I wish FOX would make Hume their WH correspondent , he would not grovel like the rest.

Here is my opinion on Susan Rice. I think she was being setup to to take the fall so Jay Carney could get in front of the press corp and say "She obviously does not speak for the WH. We knew all along this was terrorist, but she went rogue on us and began spewing this video response."

It all went south when Gen. Petraeus went "All In". It is a good thing he testified when he did so doesn´t go all "Vince Foster" on us and wind up dead.(See Clinton Admin for clarification on Vince Foster.)

Reminding me more of Watergate with every passing day, every "drip, drip, drip" -

who is going to be "Deep Throat" in this -

when are we going to see and hear the "missing tape" (with Nixon, it was the 18 1/2 minutes missing that was so serious, but it did not involve people being savagely murdered right in front of the CIC) -

I daresay there must be plenty of "expletives deleted" going on in the past week, since Petraeus announced his resignation -

now who is going to get their foot (or something) caught in a wringer?

It is interesting that the administration’s spokesperson about what happened in Benghazi was the least knowledgeable about what happened. The fact that Susan Rice was willing to parrot whatever she was told by somebody in administration puts in question if she totally lacks a brain. Somebody showing less intelligence than the village idiot should not be made Secretary of State. She is either a liar, a fool, or both.

Kathleen Sebelius is resigning, and Rachel Maddow is right to not be happy about it, not one little bit. For once, I completely agree with Maddow’s analysis. This surprise resignation presents Republicans with an unexpected opportunity to refocus the conversation on Obamacare’s negatives, offers a chance to force vulnerable Senate Democrats to take a hard vote on Obamacare six months before the midterms, and serves to disrupt what had been a positive few days of media spin for the health care law into another conversation about its many failings. About a month ago, in a conversation with a Senate Democratic

Democrats plan to turn out thousands of African-American voters this fall, in an effort to hold the Senate majority. The challenge is that some of them aren’t yet registered to vote. Which begs the question, after opportunities to elect and re-elect the first black president, why would an African-American choose this year’s midterm elections to finally jump from the sidelines and into the game? This question especially matters given that contests in North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Michigan and Louisiana will help determine control of the Senate. Democratic strategists believe there is low-hanging fruit in the black populations in Arkansas and Louisiana, where Democrats

Four years ago this week, Polish President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash near the Katyn Forest in Russia where he was flying to honor the 22,000 Polish officers, lawyers, priests and professors slaughtered there by the Soviets 70 years before. Ninety-five other military, political and public figures including his wife died on that plane. One of the more heartbreaking details to emerge was that First

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York Times

The meeting took place after reporters traveling with Mr. Obama had been moved into vans, so they didn’t witness the meeting.

He argued that an Israeli announcement of 700 new housing units for a neighborhood in Jerusalem were what did in the talks. “Poof, that was sort of the moment,” Kerry said. “We find ourselves where we are.” This is an amazing claim, especially when the housing units are not in a settlement—but are in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, in a location that every Israeli and every Palestinian knows will be part of Israel in

Express Scripts is a giant company (Fortune 100) that manages pharmacies and prescription drug processing.

It has long been recognized that “liberal” and “progressive” are misnomers when it comes to describing American leftists in the 21st Century.

Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak.

In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
