White House: ‘No Unanswered Questions’ About Susan Rice’s Appearances on Sunday Shows
In today’s press briefing, White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters that “there are no unanswered questions” about Susan Rice’s appearances Sunday shows or about the talking points she used in those appearances. “Those questions have been answered,” he said. Carney went on to allege that reporters, in asking about Rice’s Sunday show appearances, are more interested in playing politics that in “what happened in Benghazi.”
Rice has come under fire from many, including Republican senators McCain, Graham and Ayotte, who expressed their displeasure after meeting with her earlier today, for claiming on Sunday morning news programs five days after the Benghazi attack that it resulted from a spontaneous uprising over an anti-Muslim YouTube video.
