Ambassador Susan Rice faces the GOP

Ambassador Susan Rice faced three Republican senators yesterday to explain her side of the story after they criticized her for comments on Sunday talk shows regarding the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. She had suggested the attack was sparked by spontaneous protests in her September 16 interviews, and revealed yesterday that she was using unclassified talking points that excluded information linking the attack to al Qaeda. The GOP senators had only harsher criticisms of Rice after her meeting with them. CNN’s Dana Bash has the details.

    The attack on Susan Rice is just a poorly concealed attempt to put Senator Kerry's seat into play, which Scot Brown would have a good chance at. While the GOP is posturing to cut federal spending, they are wasting federal money on fraudulent investigations that serve no purpose but their political strategy. –Terry in Fayetteville, NC
