If U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice thought she could stymie the Benghazi drumbeat by sitting down with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and other top GOP senators in a closed-door session on Tuesday, she was sorely mistaken.

McCain took to Fox News on Tuesday afternoon to express his displeasure with Rice and the Obama administration's response to the attacks on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying he would be "very hard-pressed" to support her as a potential replacement to Hillary Clinton as secretary of state.

"Some of the answers were hard to understand and some of the information she had access to, clearly, they contradicted the statement that she made and, by the way, today, after all this time, she issued a statement and in that statement she said she had given false information to the wrong, to the American people about the obviously never took place," McCain told Fox's Neil Cavuto. "For example, she also said Al Qaeda was decimated. That is patently false. I asked why that statement should be made to the american people and she really had no good answer for it. There was lots of assified information that she gets briefed on that indicated this was not a hateful video that sparked a spontaneous demonstration. I still don't understand why anyone would believe when you come with mortars and rocket propelled grenades how that could possibly be viewed as a spontaneous demonstration."

2. This all about stopping Susan Rice from developing a high level

of status and becoming a political force in the future. A black woman as a formidable POTUS candidate must be stopped by them. Notice Senator Ayotte trailing around? This is all about four years from now. If they can stop Rice now, Ayotte comes out ahead big time.

6. Locking - duplicate thread

of http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014318183 , which you started earlier, and is also about the reaction of the Repub senators with whom Rice met earlier today. We've had 5 threads started in LBN in the last 24 hours about this; a 6th doesn't seem necessary.

Thanks.
