*side note* I don’t remember the CBC, the left, Democrats, or anyone else coming to defend Condi Rice in 2002 because she was black. Nor do I remember the color of her skin ever being an issue in 2005 during her confirmation hearings…. do you? I digress.
As fully expected, the Benghazi Truth leads to new manipulated narratives.
The TRUTH - The entire intelligence community knew that al-Qaeda operatives were the people who were behind the Benghazi attacks that killed Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Ty Woods. The TRUTH - Susan Rice was specifically and intentionally told to go out on Television and sell a complete line of bullsh!t. She knew it was a load of crap, and she did it anyway.
So to excuse her intentional lying the White House now shapes the narrative to say she lied, and they told her to lie, because they removed the al-Qaeda truth to protect National Security…. so the lie was excusable. Or so they claim. We saw this coming.
The water-carrying media is perfectly willing to sell this same story – and excuse under the same precepts. But now there is a larger issue, President Obama wants his willing fibber to become the United States Secretary of State.
Now you see conversations about comparisons between Condi Rice and WMD with Susan Rice and al-Qaeda. According to the logic Condi lied and yet she was confirmed, so Susan should be excused from lying and confirmed by the same folks.
Condoleeza Rice - Susan Rice
Only it is not really that simple is it. Condi Rice was not intentionally lying; The intelligence community -at the time- fully corroborated what information Condolezza Rice was aware of, she was not making it up.
In contrast Susan Rice was not telling the intelligence information as it was presented; It was changed by her, the White House, and the administration, and she knew it was changed – she WAS making it up.
Secondly, Condi Rice was engaged in the WMD discussion in 2002. Her move to State Dept. was in 2005. There was a full three years to vet, discuss, analyze and dissect the information.
Oh yeah, and did I mention that no-one ever discussed the color of Condi Rice’s skin?
