Stand down! Susan Rice to meet with caving codger John McCain
Oh goodie. Susan Rice is going to have a little pow-wow with John McCain after he indicated he was about to cave if Rice was nominated as Secretary of State. Everything knows now that the Republicans like to talk a big game, but eventually cave to ‘compromise’ in hopes of being loved by the media, and leftists in Congress. Stand down McCain!
United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice will meet with senators on Capitol Hill Tuesday to answer questions about the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya. CBS News has learned her appearance will include a morning meeting with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has been among her biggest critics since her initial remarks on the attack.
Rice has come under fire from Republicans for her initial account of the attack five days after it took place, when she suggested that there was no evidence the incident was an act of terrorism. On CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” in one example, she said the “assessment at present” was that “based on the best information we have to date…it began spontaneously in Benhgazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo, where of course as you know there was a violent protest outside our embassy sparked by this hateful video.” She added that “extremist elements” then joined the effort.
