Susan Rice Withdraws from Secretary of State Consideration

From Yahoo News (12/13/2012):

Susan Rice, the embattled U.S. Ambassador for the U. N., withdrew her name from consideration Thursday to be Secretary of State.

President Barack Obama confirmed the news in a statement Thursday afternoon, saying "While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first."

Ms. Rice was the one who was sent to the media right after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya in September 11 this year to tell the public it was a spontaneous attack stemming from the demonstration against the anti-Islam movie.

Never mind that there was no demonstration that day at the consulate, as admitted by Ms. Rice herself, albeit more than 2 months later.

Attacking her for her lies is "racist" and "sexist" in the US.

It was reported in early November, right before the US presidential election (and therefore totally ignored), that the Benghazi consulate was an CIA outfit.

Everything is "racist" and "sexist" nowadays. Except things that are actually racist and sexist.

Everything's so fucked up now.

This seems like a good article, originally posted by Hugh Jorgen over at the Ex-Pat Cafe:

I, for one, wish Ms. Rice had stood up for herself to her detractors and called them out for a public shaming. What a ridiculous capitulation. Feels lame to me.
