Vol­un­teer fib­ber

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

After the at­tack on the CIA com­pound in Beng­hazi, Pres­i­dent Obama had to cover his be­hind, and quick. Overnight, he and his ad­vis­ers ev­i­dently came up with the lie that the at­tack had been in re­sponse to a very lit­tle­known YouTube video.

Then Sec­re­tary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton was as­signed the task of mak­ing the Sun­day-talk-show rounds to spread the lie. But she re­fused to do it, so ad­viser Su­san Rice threw her­self on her sword. Ms. Rice didn’t care that it was a lie. She sim­ply fol­lowed or­ders. Once the story was out there, Mrs. Clin­ton gladly spread the lie. But she was not about to be the first one to tell it.

This means Su­san Rice is less hon­est than Hil­lary Clin­ton. I didn’t think that was pos­si­ble.
