Rice off base on recent Libya embassy attack

A mock U. S. flag set on fire by a group of about 50 angry Islamists, who were shouting anti-U.S. slogans and protesting against a film ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad, near the U.S. embassy in Ankara, Turkey, Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012. Police kept the group some 100 meters away from the building. One protester read out a statement denouncing the U.S., praising protests that erupted in Libya, Cairo and Tunisia and calling on Turks to also rise up against "insults" to the Prophet.(AP Photo/Burhan Ozbilici)

I watched our ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, pimping for the president on the news shows, and I may never be able to eat solid food again.

She was purposely lying about the recent events in Libya and the Arab world. Before I talk about her lies and deception, let me give you a short history on the ambassador. She actually saved Osama Bin Laden.

Madeleine Albright had a shot at Osama in the Sudan. Rice convinced Sandy Berger, National Security Adviser to override Albright. Osama lived, and you all know the rest of that story.

Oh, and one more thing about Susan Rice: she is a product of the Brookings Institution, a think tank that believes in one-world government, as does Obama.

This is the reason they -- Obama, Rice and others -- must reduce our influence in the world. They must reduce our military strength. They must reduce our nuclear capability. Obama and Rice believe that, in order to achieve one world government, they must make us equal in stature to any third-world country. This president is determined to diminish the America we love.

Now back to the lies and deceit. Rice told interviewers that the attack on our embassy in Libya was a spontaneous act. It was not planned, just street rabble reacting to a film.

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

We were warned three days in advance that there was the possibility of organized unrest. Had Obama been attending morning briefings, he might have prevented the death of Chris Stevens and the men who died with him, but Obama is much too busy for that. He needs to campaign.

Obama must talk to the "Pimp With a Limp" on a hip-hop station in Florida. Far more important than a visit with Benjamin Netanyahu. But I digress.

The street rabble was just that, no organization. John McCain said street rabble doesn't have rocket-propelled grenade capability or access to other sophisticated weaponry. Rice, when asked, said that our prestige in the Middle East has never been at a higher level than it is right now. But frankly, respect for America is off the board. Obviously the ambassador has not seen what damage has been done to our property in 20 different Muslim-dominated countries.

Oh yes, and the film that Obama says caused all this is none other than This is America. A filmmaker, no matter his reputation, can make any film he chooses and the president must defend that First Amendment right. Obviously Obama didn't get the First Amendment rights memo.

By the way if you believe in coincidences, these attacks just so happened to be on the anniversary of 9/11. Just a coincidence Mr. President?
