Republicans Force Rice Out of State Bid

By: JTA

Susan Rice, the front-runner to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton as U.S. secretary of state, dropped her bid for the post.

Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was caught up in a controversy over her explanation of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11.

“I didn’t want to see a confirmation process that was very prolonged, very politicized, very distracting and very disruptive because there are so many things we need to get done as a country, and the first several months of a second-term president’s agenda is really the opportunity to get the crucial things done,” Rice told NBC in video released Thursday afternoon. “I much prefer to keep doing what I’m doing, which is a job I love at the United Nations.”

Clinton plans to retire next month.

Rice, relying at the time on intelligence briefings, claimed the Libya attack was spontaneous and sparked by an anti-Muslim film. Evidence has since emerged that it was a planned terrorist attack.

She had clashed at times with pro-Israel groups at the beginning of Obama’s first term over the U.S. decision to join the U.N. Human Rights Council, a hotbed of anti-Israel sentiment, as well as her sharp condemnations of Israeli settlement expansion.

    This is a good thing–Susan Rice is an anti-Semite and otherwise evil!

  6. Hinda Blas says:

    Susan Reich is exactly what the Obama team really is – anti-Semitic, pro-terrorism and above all anti-American, anti-ally. Bravo to the Republicans for doing something right for a change. Now can you please get rid of Boehner who is a disgrace to the office he holds? We need to see impeachment proceedings started on Obama along with arrest warrants for Panetta, Clinton, Biden and others who were responsible for leaking out information that slaughtered our Navy Seals and Benghazi.

  7. Much more important is the replacement for Secretary of Defense.

    Chuck Hagel does not agree with President Obama that all options are on the table vis a vis Iran.

    Even though Iran has always cheated on any treaty it signed, he believes talks are the only option.

    He believes it is in America's interest to accept a nuclear armed Iran if Iran can not be persuaded with talk.
