BREAKING: Susan Rice’s Meeting today Fails to Pacify Republicans’ Concerns over Benghazi, Libya Terrorist Attack

November 27, 2012

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice on Tuesday met with - but failed to sway - three Republican senators who have criticized her comments about the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

"I want to say that I'm more troubled today," Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire said after she and fellow Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina met with Mrs. Rice for an hour behind closed doors on Capitol Hill.

Mrs. Rice was accompanied by Acting CIA Director Michael Morell.

"I am significantly troubled by some of the answers we got, and some we didn't get," said Mr. McCain, who has threatened to block Mrs. Rice's confirmation if she is nominated to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

President Obama reportedly is considering Mrs. Rice, as well as Sen. John F. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, to replace Mrs. Clinton, who has said she wants to step down.

The three senators, all members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, have been the most vocal critics of Mrs. Rice's comments on Sunday talk shows five days after the attack.

She based her comments on tentative and inaccurate U.S. intelligence assessments that the military-style assault on the U.S. Consulate and a nearby CIA facility, which killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, appeared to be spontaneous, inspired by protests across the Arab world against an anti-Islam video made in the United States.

Who's right: Donald Trump or Macy's?

Macy's has removed Donald Trump's products from their shelves because, while he stated that some of the Mexican people crossing our borders illegally are good people, some are murderers and rapists. While a true statement, it is not a "politically correct" statement, so Macy's has decided to pull his products from their shelves.

As a result of this, will you shop less - or not at all - in Macy's stores in the future?
