Of the most arrogant downright reckless decisions of his entire presidency Barack Obama has selected his ambassador to the UN as his next national security advisor.
-- while the left wants to spend Susan -- is unwarranted promotion as some sort of partisan payback against Republicans.
The fact is this brazen act is a slap in the face to all Americans.
As Susan Rice did not tell the truth to the Republicans in the wake of the -- -- terrorist attack shouldn't tell the truth anybody.
-- -- -- lay out the evidence that suggests that she was a co conspirator and what was a politically motivated national security cover up but first.
Here's -- president from earlier today he was in the Rose Garden.
-- background as a scholar Susan understands that there's no substitute.
For American leadership.
She is at once passionate and pragmatic.
Bigger -- understand Susan is a fierce champion for justice and human dignity Susan is the consummate public service.
Patriot who puts their country first she is fearless she is tough.
As our ambassador to the UN Susan has been a tireless advocate in advancing our interest.
I also said she was good basketball player but a tireless advocate and advancing our interest.
While that may be the case -- is referring to his political interest remember back in September 2012 at the height of the presidential election.
Susan Rice was sent on five separate Sunday shows.
To downplay al-Qaeda and terrorist involvement in the big -- attack instead she blamed the deaths of four Americans on -- YouTube video and said it was spontaneous.
Now considering the fact that miss rice is about to become the president's top advisor on matters of national security.
It's very important that we look back at some of the things that she said just days after this consulate was hit and our ambassador was assassinated.
Let's watch this.
This was not a pre planned premeditated.
That what happened initially was it it was a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo.
It as a consequence of the video what happened -- -- Ghazi.
Was in fact initially a spontaneous.
Reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo.
And almost a copycat.
Of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo.
Which were prompted of course by the video it began spontaneously.
In Ben Ghazi.
As a reaction to what it transpired some hours earlier in Cairo.
Now still to this day nine months later a number of important unanswered questions exist about -- -- number one.
Who is responsible for editing those talking points and pushing the YouTube narrative number two during the eight hours that Americans were fighting for their lives.
What was the president doing.
Number three who ordered our military stand down when they were ready to help those that were under fire.
Now one thing is certain that thanks to today's announcement is going to be awfully difficult for congressional investigators asked Susan Rice any of those questions now why.
Well because you wouldn't know it and her new post does not require senate approval and even more importantly as a member of the White House staff.
The president can prevent her from having to testify by invoking executive privilege.
Joining -- now -- reaction South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham he has been all over the -- -- case senator welcome back.
That's a pretty darn good lead and and we'll finally out the facts thank you what what's your reaction first -- -- Well number one let me -- -- Greg hicks said about.
Susan -- Sunday appearances this is the number two guy and Libya.
Our second and charged diplomat the last got to talk to Chris Stevens before he died.
He said when he heard Susan Rice appear on Sunday television he -- times -- my jaw dropped and -- embarrassed.
She gets promoted and he gets be noted what's wrong with the story.
-- what are the unanswered questions that you have because we -- what do you think our responsibility is and all of us.
-- number one I don't think she was an Indian vessel.
That they did they just poured missing information.
Through she also said and this is not in the talking points at the consulate was strongly significantly and substantially -- cheered.
And she reminded the American people that bin Laden was dead and al-Qaeda was decimated best out of the talking points she was selling.
The strip to the president's foreign policy she was providing deceptive and misleading information about the true facts.
And -- Ghazi.
She has a credibility problem I think with the average American.
She has chosen by the president of this national security advisor she was un confirmable as secretary of state having said all that out -- work whether.
The cost the world is about to blow up -- Obama's foreign policy.
Does that say here and our friends or scared -- our enemies are emboldened.
But what I want to know I want to hear from survivors not months after the attack -- we haven't heard from one person in Ben Ghazi.
Not months after the tat we don't know who on that Saturday.
Before she appeared on the Sunday television programs changed the talking points to who who was in the -- -- -- these -- in the White House.
They went from the troops to garbage and change the talking points.
And quite frankly we don't know any thing what our president did during that evening they make two movies about the bin Laden rate.
He's given one interview after another about his leadership in the bin Laden raid and he deserves credit.
We don't even know when he went a bad.
I'd like to know what when I first heard this my first reaction is all right -- the president -- the she doesn't need senate confirmation.
-- Hogan and any -- Republicans what what was your first -- I thought is this the kind of person do.
Name one person who has been demoted that was in a position responsibility.
Name one person whose lost their job because -- been Ghazi.
You know Susan Rice being promoted are being chosen as national security advisor after her performance and -- Ghazi.
Basically it's the president telling us I've got no problem with what my administration did in the -- misleading the American people.
Basically telling a narrative that didn't -- water seven weeks before the election.
He's very comfortable with his leadership and what she told the American people and to me.
That's stunning videos and paid him a bigger prize fight another thought that crossed my mind and I -- I call it chasing rabbits right now -- I would -- all the scandals of presidents cup went through that he wants the industry wants the media talking about other things -- -- -- in your disappointment everybody would talk about this.
Did -- think that maybe there is a trap set here for Republicans kind of hoping that Republicans are gonna go out there and -- Susan Rice.
And and Samantha powers and help -- that they say something that's over the top.
I don't know if he's sitting out there that clever about it I just think the president has chosen somebody he feels comfortable with.
And our whole war was Susan Rice the -- thing you know the mideast is on fire right now the king George hang about thread -- fallen apart our friends in Israel.
Under and sees the Russians are providing a -- but.
Very advanced weapons so I need to work our administration when I can't.
By the quick answers that were rapid fire questions you're one do we know wouldn't -- does he do we know why or who denied the additional security that was requested.
No but I think he -- to playing Secretary Clinton because it was her job provide security do we know who gave the stand down orders.
No I want and then hotel -- -- he couldn't go to the fight when he wanted to go to the fact that we know the president was that night.
After he had been told -- four in the afternoon.
I think everybody ending Gaza needs to know where their commander in chief was that night in what he did to try to help and and we have no clue.
Do we know who after the from the original talking points for the truth they evolved into -- web of lies do we do we definitively know where that came from.
We know it came from our group meeting in the White House we don't know who was in the meeting we don't know who chaired the -- And we don't know I got to be from the truth of -- garbage.
And -- nonstop -- we find out we -- we haven't heard from one survivor and in -- they have got to cut a small forest down trying to get.
That survivors made available for congress are stonewalling the congress we're gonna find out the answer to all these questions -- the American people deserve it.
They do it especially -- the families that lost loved ones us and I -- -- it handlers thank you had to stand on thank you.
