Rice Unpersuasive

As Bob reports, Susan Rice’s meetings with Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte may not have gone as well as the administration had hoped. The meeting lasted more than an hour, more than enough time for Rice to explain why she was chosen to go on the talk shows, who chose her, where she got the false information about the video, why she chose to promote the falsehood despite being privy (according to CBS News) to the classified intelligence memo showing that the attack was an act of terror with links to al-Qaeda, who she talked to before going on the Sunday shows, and why she didn’t correct the record when the president (purportedly) identified the attack as terrorism.

It’s highly unlikely that the answers to these questions are (or should be) classified. It would be nice if they were given to the American people.
