And the Left has the nerve to hold Colin Powell as the chief example of a government official lying openly to the public.
I provided the best information that the U.S. government had at the time. Parts of it turned out to be wrong. I regret that the information I was provided was wrong and that I delivered it to the American people. That doesn’t make me a liar.
She knew exactly what she was doing, reading scripted propaganda from Obama’s office, clueless boobs, leading even more clueless boobs to violate the public trust and their common sense. The woman simply doesn’t know when to quit doubling down on her stupidity.
5 OBAMA OFFICIALS WHO LIED, THEN LIED ABOUT LYING
Last week, National Security Advisor Susan Rice appeared on the Sunday shows to do what she does best: lie. She told the American public that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, for whom President Obama had exchanged five top Taliban commanders, had served with “honor and distinction.”
That, apparently, wasn’t true. As Bergdahl’s compatriots in arms have now told the media, Bergdahl allegedly deserted his post; some evidence has even cropped up suggesting that Bergdahl converted to Islam and embraced jihad.
So, did Rice apologize?
Of course not. On Friday, she doubled down, explaining that when she said that Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction,” she was actually “referring to the fact that this was a young man who volunteered to serve his country in uniform at a time of war. That is itself a very honorable thing.”
Which is why the Obama administration would surely character Major Nidal Hassan as serving with “honor and distinction.” After all, he signed up for the military in a time of war.
