The Washington Post's fact checker gives NSA Susan Rice four Pinocchios
for claiming that former President Obama got Syrian President
Bashar al-Assad to "voluntarily and verifiably" rid his country of
chemical weapons.


In an interview with NPR in January, Rice said that Obama was able to get Syria to "voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile."

Look at her qualifiers: words like "known" being
legalese speak. When she well "knew" that there were
chemical weapons stockpiles left in Syria, and as of 2016
they were being used by the Syrian Scientific Studies and
Research Center (SSRC), as verified by a report by the U.N.,
and the U.S. Treasury sanctioned The Syrian Officials.


Treasury Sanctions Syrian Officials In Connection With OPCW-UN Findings Of Regime’s Use Of Chemical Weapons On Civilians

Now, on to the fact checking;
Here, from WaPo is the Pinnochio test;


The reality is that there were continued chemical-weapons attacks by Syria — and that U.S. and international officials had good evidence that Syria had not been completely forthcoming in its declaration and possibly retained sarin and VX nerve agent. Yet Rice said: “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.” She did not explain that Syria’s declaration was believed to be incomplete and thus was not fully verified — and that the Syrian government still attacked citizens with chemical weapons not covered by the 2013 agreement.

That tipped her wordsmithing toward a Four.

Four Pinocchios


Washington Post

(Emphasis on bold mine)

So, here again this begs the question, what is Susan Rice hiding?
Why does she have such a hard time being forthright?

A quick review of her most recent untruths:

She gave us the Benghazi lie, about the video and a spontaneous uprising.

www.washingtontimes.com...

Then we heard the Orwellian talk about Bowe Bergdahl.

She went on to give us her spiel on the "unmasking" of Trump and associates.


At first she claimed she had done nothing unusual, not realizing her actions were coming under scrutiny. Then she admitted that, yes, she had increased her requests to the intelligence agencies as the campaign heated up and through the transition, and that she was aided in her efforts by none other than her old friend and co-conspirator, Ben Rhodes. Once it was revealed that she was collecting data on the future president, she admitted the “unmasking,” but assured everyone that, as she told reporters, she had “leaked nothing to nobody.” www.washingtontimes.com...


Now, she is exposed yet again with this "whopper of a tale".

Things are just not looking good at all for Susan Rice and her credibility.

Rice is a lapdog and does nothing without orders.
What is interesting is that she appears to keep getting orders even though her service is complete.

I was just reading the article about this.

Has me wondering if she is going to be the one under the bus in the end. They are going to have to give up someone high enough to make all of this stuff seem legit. The fact she was involved in so many of these stories makes me think the dems have chosen their short straw.

I'd love for Rice to go down, but hate that she would knowing bigger fish to fry are the ones all around her.

She and Brazile can get a reality show together and claim how racist the world is against them because they are black and women.

Rice is going down? For what? Lying? Since when is it illegal to tell a lie?

Good observation, she certainly does.
Guess we do not have to look far to find out from whom.

Looks like she is headed to Congress, where her wordsmithing
might land her in bigger trouble!

Why doesn't that surprise me coming from you?

Some of us have character and honor, apparently for some, they would rather raise their pom poms in the air at any cost to protect their political party........

That's why our country is so screwed up. Make excuses whether what was done was right or wrong based upon which party did it. I say put em all in jail if they violate their oath to the Constitution and the People!

I would like to say "so sad" but it would be lost on you....

I think she will take the 5th. I do not see her offering testimony without an immunity deal.(like the 5 last summer)

You could be right, she sure is caught up in the finger
pointing to such a degree she is an obvious target.



I'd love for Rice to go down, but hate that she would knowing bigger fish to fry are the ones all around her.


Even if just one of those lies were to be tied to Clinton, or
Obama...just one. These are not small issues, these are all
National Security Issues, plain as day...sure that was her
title yet we know she is covering for at least those other two.

Yah, I saw Chris Matthews trying to dismiss all of her "lies"
as just misogamy, etc. "End of story"!

right....because Syria was INCAPABLE of making or acquiring other chemical weapons...AFTER...they got rid of what they had. do you people ever think just a little outside the box, or do you just stick to your right-wing script?

And that means what? You didn't tell me anything that she would be arrested for.

Oh boohoo! I'm not all upset at the OP and calling for Rice's head! Sorry, I require a BIT more effort be put in before I start signing off on your CT.

Remember she said she wouldn't let the UN use the term genocide for the millions who died in Rwanda because it would be bad for her Party the Democrats in the midterm elections.

She is a Party hack, sent to risk political suicide to run blocker for her political Party.

Agree, it might go like this in a few weeks she will be saying she
"does not recall", Then, in front of Congress she will take the 5th.

All 5 of those immunity deals linked back to the DOJ.
Who is in there now, Jeff Sessions?

Did you even read the report from the U.S. Treasury on the sanctions?
The one based on The United Nations report?


As part of today’s action, OFAC is also designating several officials of the Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) pursuant to E.O.13382, which targets proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and their supporters. The SSRC is the Syrian government agency responsible for developing and producing non-conventional weapons and the means to deliver them and was named in the annex to E.O. 13382.

Brigadier General Ghassan Abbas



The European Union previously sanctioned Abbas for proliferating chemical weapons and organizing chemical weapons attacks, including the sarin attack in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta in August 2013. As of 2016, Abbas has continued operating at locations in Syria associated with chemical warfare-related missions.

Maybe you should read it!

Then tell me, how is the WaPo right wing?

And please tell me, how is the United Nations "right wing"?

And then tell me, how was Obama's Treasury "right wing"?

And how was Obama right wing for sanctioning Syria?

Shaking my head!

You give them too much credit: I think she's at this point considered expendable. Better her than "them" when it comes to falling on their collective sword.

I don't expect her to get in any kind of criminal trouble, but I expect to see her keelhauled over and over again until the pound of flesh is extracted and then she'll be tossed aside to write a book and live out her days in quiet comfort.

I just don't see there being any "risk of political suicide." To me, it's a done deal. She already knows what the recompense will be when it's over with.
