A False Attack on Amb. Rice
Sen. Barbara Boxer, Huffington Post
As I have listened to leading Republicans denigrate Ambassador Susan Rice, I am struck by how unfair this attack is, how untruthful it is, and how at odds it is with their past actions.
The truth is, when Ambassador Rice was asked on Face the Nation about the tragic deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, she shared exactly what she and the Congress had been directly told at the time by the intelligence community.
But she also said that this information was preliminary, stressing that an investigation had begun, and warning that "we'll want to see the results of that investigation to draw any definitive conclusions."
She was not spinning. She was not twisting the truth. She was simply being forthcoming with the best information...
TAGGED: Benghazi, Libya, Susan Rice
