King: ‘Susan Rice Should Resign’

comments, as always, by yours truly [ ]

House Homeland Security Committee chairman Pete King is calling on U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to resign over her comments on the Sunday talk shows September 16 regarding the Libyan attacks.

“I think Susan Rice should resign. She is America’s foreign policy spokesman to the world as ambassador to the U.N.,” King, a Republican congressman from New York, tells National Review Online. [ Who do you suppose Obama might choose to replace her, Louis Farrakhan? I heard the Blind Sheikh will be available soon. Maybe he could represent this administration? He’d fit right in at the U.N. ]

Rice appeared on five Sunday morning shows five days after the attacks.  On ABC’s This Week, she said, “Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” despite the fact that U.S. officials knew terrorism was involved within 24 hours after the attack. [ Actually, the State Department knew well in advance. Blaming Rice is ridiculous. She was towing the administration line. ]

“Very nice person, very smart,” King says of Rice, “but the fact is she gave out information which was either intentionally or unintentionally misleading and wrong and there should be consequences for that. And I don’t see how she didn’t know how that information was wrong. What she could have and should have said was the final word isn’t in yet, certainly strong evidence that there was strong terrorist involvement, [but identifying] the exact nature it’ll  take us a few more days. That would have been legitimate.”

[ Okay, can we just put this, “nice person” crap away. It has nothing to do with anything, and how many “nice people” will sit there and lie to whole world five separate times. I’ve heard that about Obama also. He’s a nice person, just misguided. I personally can’t name a single marxist, communist or anticolonialist I would consider to be “nice”. ]

King also called for an investigation into what was known before the attack. “This warrants a full investigation,” he says. “I believe there should be a congressional investigation. I think there should be an internal investigation.” [ Yes, like the recent investigation into the “Fast and Furious” scandal that basically exonerated Eric Holder. I’m sure he’s a “nice person” too. ]

Benghazi, he adds, “was a hotbed of al-Qaeda activity, of militia activity, of terrorist activity. We knew that the facilities that we were using there were not adequately fortified. These were temporary, basically private residences which had almost none of the protections that a consulate should have.” [ Has anyone, save for a few of us, even asked what the ambassador was doing there? You may wish to re-read “Benghazi was no Coincidence”  ]

“To allow the American ambassador to go there,” he continues, “ to allow us to keep records or documentation there or anything  in such an unsecure and such a dangerous area and such unsecure facilities with such little security appears to be gross negligence, and may be criminal negligence.” [ Unless it was not a consulate, but a CIA safe house ]

He also criticized the administration’s reluctance to call the attacks terrorism. “Either they intentionally mislead the American people or they were extremely uninformed,” King remarks. “Neither excuse is very good. From the start, I can see them saying we’re not certain what caused it, but the presumption from the start should have been that it was a terrorist attack or the terrorist were heavily involved.” [ I wish someone would just come out and state the obvious; This administration, from the top down, is filled with bad people who don’t appear at all concerned with our security, or that of our allies ]

Obama, he speculates, had political reasons to avoid calling it terrorism. “What I believe now is that the president is so fixated on convincing the American people that we have defeated al-Qaeda and that al-Qaeda is no longer a real threat by saying this was a terrorist attack, or by acknowledge a terrorist attack,  it would be looked upon as a defeat for his policies against al-Qaeda,” King says. [ No need for speculation Mr. King. It’s a fact ]
