Washington Pos Writes Wrong Headline

(Before It's News)

Here is the headline. The implication is that Rice has an enviable track record and it is being damaged. Actually Rice has a terrible record of lying both to news media and under oath. The Pos article tells us that she has a bad record but the headline is just wrong.

“Susan Rice’s track record is taking a beating”

Susan Rice may want to stop giving interviews at this point.

While Rice’s ascent in Democratic foreign policy circles is the stuff of legend, she has also demonstrated a completely unhelpful tendency to say the wrong thing to the media. And it’s come back to bite her twice just this month.

The most recent example was highlighted Monday by The Post’s Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler. In an NPR interview three months before Syria’s government allegedly used chemical weapons on its own people last week, Rice had hailed the Obama administration’s success in removing such chemical weapons. “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile,” she said.


Kessler gave Rice four Pinocchios — the highest degree of falsehood possible”

What about the stupid lie that a You Tube video caused the Benghazi attack?

Rice’s most infamous media comments, of course, came after the 2012 Benghazi attacks, when she appeared on multiple Sunday shows to say that he evidence at hand suggested they weren’t pre-planned attacks but were instead a spontaneous response to protests in Cairo over an anti-Islam video. Those comments initially earned two Pinocchios and helped turn Benghazi into a liability for the Obama administration and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

Glenn Kessler has a strange way of grading falsehoods. He gave Rice two Pinocchios for her Benghazi lie – where she went on five Sunday media shows with the same lie. Then he gives her four of the little fellas for the Syrian WMD lie. Even the Pos writer calls the Benghazi lie her ‘Most infamous media comment’.
