Susan Rice is a Tool

Susan Rice is a tool. She is lying about the recent events in the Middle East. It was not a "spontaneous" attack, nor was the attack a result of the film she continues to claim was the reason. What you hear her saying, on the Obama broadcast network is completely bogus. "Best Intelligence" my foot.

Reasoning (contrary to much strong evidence) from the premise that poverty breeds terrorism, Rice believes that U.S. taxpayers should fund nearly $100 billion per year of new-development-aid programs under the auspices of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Project -- a massive wealth-redistribution initiative designed to transfer money from the world's developed states to its poor states, many of them in Africa.

Rice also calls for the use of American military power to intervene -- as part of a large, well-funded UN peacekeeping force -- directly in African conflicts such as the one in the Darfur region of Sudan. Advocating the imposition of a no-fly zone and the bombing of Sudanese aircraft, airfields, and military and intelligence assets, Rice has said: “[I]f the United States fails to gain UN support [for these measures], we should act without it.”

Early in his administration, President Obama announced, against Rice's counsel, that the U.S. would not participate in a scheduled 2009 “World Conference Against Racism” in Durban, South Africa, because that Conference’s official documents contained too many critical references to Israel, too many restrictions on freedom of expression, and too much language calling for reparations to compensate contemporary nonwhites for the evils of Western slavery centuries ago.

Rice held that U.S. participation in UN efforts such as the Durban Conference performs the important function of showing the world that Americans are willing to denounce the remnants of slavery and colonialism from a global platform.

On June 11, 2010, it was reported that Rice played an important role in pushing the Obama administration to support a United Nations investigation of a deadly May 31 fight between Israeli commandos and a number of passengers aboard a Gaza-bound, pro-Palestinian ship. The ship was carrying humanitarian relief supplies to Gaza, but its crew refused to comply with Israeli requirements that all cargo be submitted for inspection, thereby igniting the trouble. According to Israel, approximately 40 of the 600-plus people aboard the vessel were Turkish jihadis who instigated the violence, and at least five were known to have ties to Islamic terrorism.

In February 2011, Rice stated: “For more than four decades, [Israeli settlement activity] has undermined security … corroded hopes for peace and security … it violates international commitments and threatens prospects for peace.” During testimony she gave two months later, Rice reiterated that sentiment, asserting that “Israeli settlement activity is illegitimate.”
