The Incompetent Susan Rice Gets Promoted


The Incompetent Susan Rice Gets Promoted

United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice will be the next National Security Advisor to President Obama. Her appointment from President Obama does not require the approval of the U.S. Senate. As the President’s National Security Advisor running the National Security Council, Rice will be responsible for settling bureaucratic disputes between the Department of Defense, the State Department and other U.S. government agencies. The job requires someone willing to speak up and make decisions based on facts. Susan Rice will undoubtedly be a failure – we have seen her struggle with these same issues in her current role all too much.

While most Americans will only remember Rice as the face of the Sunday shows where she spun the tale about a YouTube video as the reason radical Islamists attacked U.S. embassies and consulates in the Middle East and North Africa on the anniversary of 9/11, she has a long history of failing to lead or even speak up on important issues.

While the national media debates whether or not she knowingly misled 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 have received the promotion she did this week:

1.   failed to call an emergency meeting of the Security Council after the 2010 Haiti earthquake 
2.   skipped the Security Council debate and vote to add new UN Peacekeepers in Haiti after the earthquake 
3.   led the US during the most inactive Security Council since 1991 during her first year as Ambassador 
4.   held her first press conference with the UN Secretary General on the pressing international issue of texting while driving 
5.   failed to speak out when Col. Gaddafi’s Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Commission 
6.   waited 17 months before voting on the one and only UN resolution on Iran passed during her tenure 
7.   dismissed by Hillary Clinton from negotiating most of the Iran resolution with the French 
8.   lost the support of more nations on her one Iran resolution than the previous five Iran resolutions combined 
9.   took 103 days to move the Security Council to issue a statement after a North Korean submarine sank the South Korean ship that killed 46 sailors 
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 
13.   skipped the UN Security Council‘s emergency meeting on the Gaza flotilla crisis 
14.   snubbed Israel to the point they skipped President Obama’s 2010 UN speech 
15.   took more than 2 years to find someone to head America’s UN reform team 
16.   failed to address the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to ascertain how erroneous scientific claims were added to official UN reports 
17.   painfully slow in getting a UN resolution on the Sudan-South Sudan referendum 
18.   ignored Canada’s pleas for help in getting elected to the Security Council 
19.   negotiated with the UN’s Arab Group to condemn Israel’s settlements 
20.   failed to lead the Security Council during Tunisia’s Arab Spring protests 
21.   didn’t speak out on the Libya crisis until the French, British and Arab League had done so 
22.   failed to attend the first Security Council meeting on the Arab Spring protests 
23.   failed to get the support of allies India, Germany and Brazil on the UN’s Libya resolution 
24.   failed to lead the Security Council during Egypt’s Arab Spring protests 
25.   failed to lead the Security Council during Yemen’s Arab Spring protests 
26.   failed to lead the Security Council to confront Bashar al-Assad’s brutal violence where US resolutions received an unprecedented three vetoes on three different votes 
27.   agreed to send former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to Syria where he failed miserably 
28.   skipped the last open meeting before the planned UN vote to recognize Palestinian statehood 
29.   failed to speak out when Iran was elected Vice President of the Global Arms Treaty negotiations
