A Little Comedy From the Left

There's not a lot that's funny in the news these days.  There's a great deal that's false, but that's really not funny.  There's even more that's horrible, and that's certainly not funny.  (For example, it's hard to laugh at Syria.)  That's why I thought it really great that Real Clear Politics republished a piece by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice.  The column originally appeared in the Washington Post.  Here's the headline of the piece (which is really all you need to read.)

When White House Twists The Truth, We're All Less Safe

Are you laughing yet?  You should be.  Remember, Susan Rice's most memorable moment came in September of 2012.  On that day, she represented the Obama White House on five Sunday morning news shows.  It was a few days after the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans, including our ambassador to Libya, dead.  Rice went from show to show and told the nation that there had been no terror attack; rather, there had just been a spontaneous riot as a result of a youtube video about the prophet Muhammed.  The fact that nobody in Libya had seen the video seemed to have escaped Rice's attention.  So did the fact that the supposed spontaneous rioters had been armed with heavy weapons like mortars and RPGs.  (Perhaps she thinks that people carry small artillery with them when they go out for a walk in Benghazi. -- That's Chicago, not Benghazi.)  The reality is that Rice went on every major network news show that day and lied.  Next to "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan," it was the clearest example of a lie told by the Obamacrats during the Obama years.  And now Rice is warning against the Trump White House "twisting" the truth?

I used to wonder if Susan Rice had any common sense.  I guess I don't have to wonder anymore.  The answer seems clearly to be a loud NO.  For her to write this article proves she's a fool.
