It sounds like you're saying that the administration has an obligation to disbelieve the Intelligence Community and to carry ot its own investigation. If, as has been speculated on this forum, a CIA installation in the consulate annex was a possible reason for the attack, wouldn't withholding a statement on a terrorist connection be justified? Does any administration have an obligation to make public all information it receives from the intelligence community? Hell, last year I helped release a declassified version of Senate Executive Sessions that took place in 1967 -- and some parts are still classified.
She's very light-skinned and skin-tone is the most important factor in employment for black Americans.
She could probably "pass" and appears to have "good hair" too,In America especially, Harrison says, when people think of race or race relations they commonly think of black and white. In fact, skin tone differences are responsible for increasing differences in perceptions within standard racially defined groups such as “blacks.” This diversity within races based on skin complexion has a long history but only recently have researchers begun to understand what these differences can mean.
“Our results indicate that there appears to be a skin tone preference in regards to job selection,” said Harrison. “This finding is possibly due to the common belief that fair-skinned blacks probably have more similarities with whites than do dark-skinned blacks, which in turn makes whites feel more comfortable around them.”
Society, he said, equates lighter skin with attractiveness, intelligence, competency and likeability, while we are often given a “much more dismal and bleak picture” of those who have darker skin.
Now, if Rice had seen all the available intelligence and knew it was terrorist attack, then she lied -- and if you don't believe there was a valid reason to lie then that's a reason to oppose her as a future Secretary of State, but it's definitely not incompetent.
Sometimes, incompetent is just incompetent.
Since we stupid whiteys don't seem to know, what word should have been chosen by someone (white) who was of the opinion that Dr. Rice was incompetent?
The CIA annex was in a different location than the Consulate. The presence of the CIA in Benghazi was well known in very short course following the incident and before the talking points were distributed (what specifically the CIA was doing there remains to be answered). Given that (a) the attack had already happened and (b) the CIA's presence there was already exposed, what rationale does one have for withholding a statement of terrorist involvement?
One would rather see more disclosure than less and a reversal of the trend of stamping 'top secret' on virtually everything. In regards to your last point, what possible basis is there for keeping information from a (the) Senate Executive Sessions that took place in 1967 secret in 2011/2012?
Calling her incompetent is not racial. It is completely inaccurate however. And actually if you look at McCain, somewhat off the rails hysterical.
Rice is obviously out of her league, she sucks, the congressional black choir see's boogie men even when they knowingly don't.
