What a great country we are giving a “Great American” award to the woman who spun a tale of deception and falsehoods about why four U.S. diplomats were murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice was awarded the 2013 Louis E. Martin Great American Award Tuesday evening for a variety of reasons that fly in the face of her actions after the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi killed fellow U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other diplomats.
The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies gave the “Great American” honor to Rice “for her work in advancing U.S. interests, strengthening the world’s common security and prosperity, and promoting respect for human rights,” according to a press release.
Vice President Joe Biden was in attendance at the award ceremony and noted Rice’s “incredible job representing America’s interests.”
“When she speaks…no one wonders whether or not she is speaking for the president,” Biden said, according to CNN.
Well, that statement certainly hits home as we recall Rice’s appearances on five Sunday talk shows to twist, spin, lie, cover-up and deceive the American people with a false version of what sparked the deadly attack in Benghazi.
While Rice was accepting accolades and being hailed a “great American” Tuesday night, three State Department whistleblowers prepared to testify before Congress Wednesday on the events that unfolded before, during and after terrorists killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods.
And on Wednesday, we learned from whistleblower Gregory Hicks that he was “stunned and embarrassed” by the “great American” Rice’s account that a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islamic YouTube video is what caused the attack.
