Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has been the focal point of accusations that the Obama administration misled the American public about the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. On Sept. 16, five days after the attack, Rice asserted on several news programs that the attack stemmed from a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim video, a claim that the White House has since corrected. <Source>
Is it possible that General Petraeus, then head of the CIA, allegedly lied to Susan Rice much as he allegedly lied to Congress? No matter what the truth may turn out to be, Susan Rice should be considered collateral damage and not allowed to become the next Secretary of State.
