GOP Leaders "Significantly Troubled" After Meeting With Susan Rice

Posted: Nov 27, 2012 1:40 PM

Senators McCain, Graham and Ayotte have wrapped up their meeting with UN Ambassador Susan Rice about her role in presenting false information about what happened to Benghazi to the American people. She said on five Sunday talk shows the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi on 9/11 was the result of a spontaneous protest that got out of control. Today she admitted that wasn't true, opening a whole other door for questions about why false talking points were used in the first place.

"I'm more troubled today...because it is certainly clear from the beginning that we knew those with ties to al Qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy." -Senator Kelly Ayotte

"It is clear the information she gave the American people was incorrect." -Senator John McCain

"Bottom line is, I'm more disturbed now than I was before." -Senator Lindsey Graham

Senator Graham threw the intelligence community right under the bus during this press conference, but didn't offer specific details about why they are to blame. He still seemed set on preventing on Rice's nomination for Secretary of State should President Obama attempt to put her in that position.
