Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice Says GOP Is Targeting Her Because She’s Black And A Woman

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice says Republicans criticize her harshly because she’s black and female.

Rice famously went on five Sunday talk shows and blamed the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya — which left four Americans including the U.S. ambassador dead — on a YouTube video. Of course, top administration officials knew almost immediately that the attack was terrorism, but with the presidential election just two months in the future, then-president Barack Obama led a campaign of disinformation (read: lies) to distract from the scandal.
