When it comes to the most blatant hypocrisy of them all in the aftermath of the takedown death of Islamic State ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, former Obama national security adviser “it was a youtube video” Susan Rice, is Queen.
Make that Queen of Hypocrisy who takes the whole cake.
Rice, who provided cover for both Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Benghazi tragedy—making five televised appearances with rat-a-tat lies that protests and an obscure anti-Muslim video were the cause for American loss of life in the Benghazi boondoggle—is now in a huff because President Trump did not inform Obama about the coming al-Baghdadi take down.
Rice terms Trump not informing Obama about the perfectly executed raid, denying Obama “normal protocol“ and “common courtesy”.
“There is a tradition of common courtesy of presidents informing their predecessors of things of significance like this,” she told CBS’s Face the Nation, on Sunday night.
That’s what her former boss failed to give each and every American when he decided to disappear their entire country with his 8-year-long, mad mission to “fundamentally transform” America—a mission he continues to press on the United States to this day in his role as a largely hidden ‘resistance’ leader in private life.
And as time was to prove, it wasn’t only the disgrace of Benghazi that happened on Obama’s and Clinton’s watch.
It should go without saying that Obama had his chance to deal with terrorists when he was in the Oval Office—but instead he publicly called them the “JV team”.
Obama and his useless national security adviser Susan Rice, would be quick to throw in the fallacy that it was they who saved the world from the likes of 9/11 mastermind al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
But it was the Navy SEALs who did the heavy lifting, but patriots will always be suspicious that Obama took the credit for himself and that it was only one day later, when Obama posted a bogus birth certificate online.
Obama knew all along about the deadly treachery of al-Baghdadi at large—yet did diddly squat about it for eight long years.
Just weeks ago, Rice in promoting her new book, was lamenting how she was sent out in place of Clinton to cover Benghazi, at the White House’s request:
“Where is Hillary Clinton? (Fox News, Oct. 8, 2019)
“That was the question then-U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice’s mother asked when she told her she would be appearing on all five Sunday morning political shows on Sept. 16, 2012 — just five days after the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The plan was to appear in place of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at the White House’s request.
“I smell a rat,” her mother said. “This is not a good idea. Can’t you get out of it?”
“The exchange was detailed in Rice’s new book, “Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For,” as she recalled what led to and what fueled the biggest political controversy of her government career.
“In the memoir, Rice recalled delivering talking points provided to her by the CIA, which were corrected after the fact — the result, she said, of updated intelligence. She soon became the face of the Obama administration’s response to the attack, which was strongly criticized by GOP lawmakers.
“During her appearances, Rice said that the terrorist attack in Benghazi spun out of “demonstrations” that had been taking place.
“Rice was also called out for supposedly claiming that the attack was in response to an anti-Muslim video that was posted online. In her book, she insisted this is not what she said—making the distinction that the video was her stated reason for unrest in Cairo, Egypt, and that the Benghazi attack was in turn inspired by what was happening in Cairo.
““The political climate was tense at this time, less than two months before a presidential election, but Rice described the period after the election as even worse, “because there was no end in sight to the incoming hits.” At this point, Rice was being considered for the secretary of state job.
“Rice’s 9-year-old daughter was undergoing tests for “frightening hallucinations” and Rice’s mother was “traumatized,” she wrote.
No mention in her self-serving book about the “frightening hallucinations” and trauma felt by the loved ones of; Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
Shame on you, Susan Rice, for declaring that Obama—of all people— should have been informed about al-Baghdadi’s planned take down.
Obama and Rice continue to live the lie—even at the expense of the ‘Land of the Free’ and the ‘Home of the Brave’.
