Susan Rice on Benghazi: I don’t have time to think about the false controversy

National Security Adviser Susan Rice says she has no regrets about taking the Sunday show interviews that brought her career under fire in September 2012.

Pressed Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes” as to why Hillary Clinton didn’t appear for interviews following the lethal attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Rice said she had filled in willingly because of the then-secretary of state’s particularly “painful” and “stressful” week.

“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.”

Speaking in 2012 on multiple TV shows four days after the Benghazi attacks killed four, Rice hewed to the initial White House line that the attacks were a spontaneous response to protest an anti-Muslim video. “This is not an expression of hostility in the broadest sense toward the United States or to U.S. policy,” Rice said at the time.

Accusations that Rice made deliberately misleading statements about the attacks being “spontaneous” in the interviews later led her, Stahl said, to miss a chance to be nominated as secretary of state.

  • Art Hock says:

    Rice is another of Obama’s so-called advisors along with the nitwit Valerie Jarrett. Both of these imposters are complete idiots and are Muslim and they hate America and want to destroy us from within.

    our half white muslim president , ordered the military to stand down not send help a general and a admiral were relieved of there commands because they were in the process of sending help, Sean Smith even went to the gaming network asking for help and this happened 4pm our time not 2am, what nobody answered the phone to send help. Maybe Snowden should release the textes and emails sent that day, I guess it was all expresident George Bushes Fault. Remember this November 2014 and vote the DEMS out of Office, The Socialist Party, Putting Christ back into this country, God bless you all.

    I can’t fathom why this administration isn’t being held accountable for the litany of misdeeds it has committed. Compared to present company Nixon was an angel!

  • Jack Parker says:

    This is the kind of kind of false reasoning that lies at the core of the Odumbo regime.

  • James Maxwell says:

    The only false controversy is her in an office that has people lives at risk. Like
    the rest of the O’socialist criminally insane bottom feeders they live in a world
    of delusion . The are hoping that their supporters will save them from he wrath
    of the American people. The corruption, deceit and lies spewed forth have
    attracted some who expect the government to provide for all their desires
    at the expense of those who actually work and earn their living. but those
    are getting tired and will arise to stop the destruction of our nation. There
    is no “Free” ride for those who hate out nation and the day of reckoning is

    fast approaching.

      Gawd but I hope you’re right. The upcoming elections will determine if we still have a Republic or not.

  • Bronco Billy says:

    Poor Hillary, 4 Americans are killed and it is such a painful and stressful week that she can’t do her job! Hillary needs to stay home to rest her weak mind and body and keep an eye on Bill. Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton are both failures and an embarrassment to the American people.

  • modernminuteman says:

    Wouldn’t you all like to see her say this face to face to the families of the four dead?

  • WiSe GuY says:

    False? Four American’s are dead. What is so false about that?
