Who is Susan Rice?
We first hear about Susan Rice During Michael Dukakis’s 1988 bid for president, where she served as a foreign policy aide.
She later served in various capacities in the Clinton Administration from 1993 t0 2001. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright who was a long time mentor and family friend to Rice,urged President Clinton, in 1997, to appoint her as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. She served as the 12th Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs from 1997 to 2001.
In 2002, she joined the Brookings Institution as senior-fellow in the Foreign Policy program. In an article in the Daly Bell, the Brookings Institution is described “…like other think tanks, the Brookings Institute’s real purpose is to justify big government for the power elite.”
In january, 2009, Susan Rice became the 27th United States Ambassador to the United Nations for the Barack Obama Administration.
As a result of recent Congressional criticism about her handling of the Administrations Benghazi Debacle, Susan Rice’s career has come under scrutiny with some very disturbing conclusions and had John McCain calling her “Unfit” for the job.
In a November 29th Wall Street Journal Article , The Trouble With Susan Rice – The would-be secretary of state’s record on Iran, Israel, human rights and more by Anne Bayefsky and Michael B. Mukasey, they point out her utter diplomatic disregard for Israel’s case against a Nuclear Iran as follows:
“Senators might also explore Ms. Rice’s broader record at the U.N. Why, for example, did she think it was appropriate to absent herself from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s September speech to the General Assembly, the purpose of which was to offer the global community a painstaking explanation of why Iran must be stopped before it can weaponize its growing stock of enriched uranium.”

30 Reasons Why Susan Rice Should Not Get Promoted
By Richard Grenell Thursday, November 29, 2012
Ambassador Susan Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi, as President Obama told us, but she appeared on five Sunday political talk shows anyway. On those shows, Rice mouthed talking points that weren’t true. We now know that the talking points did not match the intel reports, which she had complete access to. While the national media debates whether or not she knowingly mislead the public on the Sunday shows, her failings and shortcomings before the Benghazi terrorist attacks have not received the attention they deserve.
Here are 30 reasons (that have nothing to do with Benghazi) why Susan Rice should not get a promotion.
1. failed to call an emergency meeting of the Security Council after the 2010 Haiti earthquake

10. took 18 days to lead the Security Council to action after a North Korean nuclear test (it took John Bolton 5 days in 2006)
11. failed to support the Iranian opposition during their Green Revolution
12. failed to speak out when Iran was elected to the UN Women’s Commission
