Even when the Obama administration is being transparent and forthcoming, even as they are wanting and willing to learn from the mistakes of Benghazi, where unfortunately four people died, Senator McCain refuses to back down.
Call me old-fashioned but I still believe that truth and falsehood exist; that with some effort a nation's policymaking and political establishment can determine one from the other
The problem for Rice is not only that she has imbibed the administration's agnosticism about the bond between religious belief and terrorism. Her flawed narratives are compounded by a lingering sense of guilt.
Jonah Goldberg doesn't believe there are any racists in the Republican Party. In his column last week, he began by explaining that the Republican Party is, in fact, not racist at all. Apologies if you reflexively spat out your beverage, soaking your keyboard. Send the bill to Goldberg.
During a week in which those icons of feminism -- senators McCain and Graham -- viciously attacked Susan Rice, Dowd somehow decided it was perspicacious to go after her, too. Dowd has always been a cheap-shot artist, but her initial attack on Rice last week was even below the bargain-bin variety.
In a speech before the University of Denver's Alumni Symposium on October 26, Paula Broadwell confirmed that 'they' knew within 24 hours that the attack was thought to be an attempt to free Libyan militia prisoners. Where did Ms. Broadwell get her information?
The senator has dedicated his life to public service, which is to be commended. He is therefore committing an unforced error on his legacy, and it would be a shame for him to tip the scales further toward pathetic rather than powerful.
U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice has been accused of intentionally misleading the American people on these programs. The facts prove otherwise.
Susan Rice -- whom Senators McCain and Graham have vowed to block if she is nominated to be Secretary of State and whom McCain condemned as "unqualified" for the position -- did her job and presented the intelligence community's assessment of what happened in Benghazi. What else should she have done?
We know that Republicans do not like to govern, but apparently they want to prevent anyone else from doing it too, especially a popular Democratic president.
If Susan Rice must be held to account, so must Condoleeza Rice. Leading America into a costly and deadly war that has no real signs of ending has been a detriment to our economy and families everywhere who've lost family members or had them return home in a condition far worse than when they left.
Much to our nation's detriment, we are dangerously close to falling back into the pattern of a democracy that can self-destruct by means of self-investigation.
One does not have to listen too carefully to understand what happened with the administration's reports on the Benghazi tragedy, and how Republicans, as they did in the outing of Valerie Plame, prioritized political gain over national security.
How awful, as we enter the great family fun season of sugar cookies, Charlie Brown and battered, beloved board games, to find ourselves suddenly flashing our hands in front of the kids' tender eyes to block them from the latest in the sordid franchise: Real Housewives of Military Bases.
Did everyone in the free world all of a sudden forget that it was not the Obama administration but the protestors on the ground in Libya who actually first stated that the reason they were protesting was because of the anti-Islam video, Innocence of Muslims?
As I have listened to leading Republicans denigrate Ambassador Susan Rice, I am struck by how unfair this attack is, how untruthful it is, and how at odds it is with their past actions.
