The arguments about the merits or demerits of Rice are a red herring.
Rice has to be regarded as the messanger, as Democrats in Congress (it pains me to say it, folks) correctly point out. The real argument is with the one who crafted and ordered the dissemination of the message, which would be Obama himself.
Thus, when he said, "if you have a problem, take it up with me," there was truth in that statement as he was the one responsible for crafting the "film caused the attack" official narrative. This is a narrative that has lead to the alleged maker of the film to Federal lockup as a de facto political prisoner.
But the Congressional Men are saying that she had to be aware that her statement would have been bogus because
all of the information going around, yet she continued to say it. As you said, Obama might have forced her to say it,
and then it is his responsibility. If they hold Rice accountable also, then Obama will have to see that his allies will be held
accountable, and he may not be able to use them as puppets so freely, which will be good.
Now I am hearing that both parties, Dems And Republicans are lieing and covering up the story. Have you heard that?
