Dr. Susan Rice should resign her post as the U.N. Ambassador of the United States.
The bald-faced lies that she blatantly repeated five days after the savage and brutal attack against the American compounds (plural) in Libya on September 11, 2012 are enough to bar her from being allowed to represent the United States in any position of trust for a very long time to come. Americans don't like it when facts get mixed up or miscommunicated, but purposefully using the media megaphone that is the top television news platforms to openly lie to the American people defies Nixonian and Clintonian levels of brash arrogance and contempt for the Americans who pay her salary.
But it also must be clearly understood, that Dr. Susan Rice simply resigning from her post as a highly placed official within the current administration accomplishes almost zero.
It's not like Dr. Rice has been all that busy pressing for human rights and the spread of freedom at the United Nations. She, like her supervisor President Obama, was evidently too busy for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and boycotted his speech before the General Assembly--just like Iran.
Her lack of importance within the administration was in fact probably one of the ideal reasons she was touted as the mouthpiece on something as important as the U.S. rapid response to the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2012.
But Dr. Rice is not the only one who participated in the blatant falsehoods told to the American people, told to the media, and most importantly told to the families of the victims of the 9.11.12 attacks.
According to multiple sources, including Israeli and British journalists, Fox News' Catherine Herridge, and finally some outlets in American broadcast media, the trail of dereliction, disaster, and dishonesty was shared by many.
Reporters who work for the Jerusalem Post were able to confirm, that as early as September 4th, Libyan intelligence was issuing warnings to the Obama administration as to the looming violent environment, the intentions of the organized terror forces on the ground in Benghazi, and the approximate timeline of a coming attack. This was followed closely on the heels with British media on September 9th.
The Ambassador's itinerary still had him out of Libya and tending to matters in Europe. Instead of acting on the early intelligence, keeping the ambassador out of country for a few more days, the administration took no action--an epic shoulder shrug if ever there was one.
