Obama's naming of another Clinton era cog continues with Dr. Susan Rice as ambassador to the UN.
Dr. Rice's biggest claim to fame may be for her work in setting the stage for the global 'War on Terror'. This was letting bin Laden remain alive during Clinton's years and allowing the plans for 9/11 to continue.
“Yid With Lid reported that Susan Rice is one those responsible for letting Osama Bin Laden get away in the 1990’s.”
She deserves a hefty portion of blame for the fact that Osama bin Laden wasn’t neutralized during the 1990s.
“The FBI, in 1996 and 1997, had their efforts to look at terrorism data and deal with the bin Laden issue overruled every single time by the State Department, by Susan Rice and her cronies, who were hell-bent on destroying the Sudan,” one-time Clinton diplomatic troubleshooter Mansoor Ijaz told radio host Sean Hannity in 2002.
Richard Miniter, author of the book “Losing bin Laden,” concurred, saying Rice played a key role in scuttling the deal that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.
In November 2003, Miniter told World Magazine that while Sudan was anxious to turn bin Laden over to the U.S., Rice - then a member of Clinton’s National Security Council - questioned Khartoum’s credibility.
“Rice [cited] the suffering of Christians [in Sudan] as one reason that she doubted the integrity of the Sudanese offers,” said Miniter. “But her analysis largely overlooked the view of U.S. Ambassador to Sudan Tim Carney, who argued for calling Khartoum’s bluff.”
Although she was called a bungler in letting Osama slip away, that's being a little harsh.She was just following orders. America's enemy #1 couldn't be allowed to be captured. There was still too much use to be made of him.
As if you could not have guessed, Ms. Rice is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Rhodes scholar.
Maybe hard to guess but not surprising is that Rice’s father, Emmett J. Rice, was a governor of the Federal Reserve System. There's always a banker in the wood pile.
Cliff Kincaid gives some insight on Rice:
Senator Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice―were close associates of Brookings Institution president Strobe Talbott, an advocate of world government who was named as a trusted contact of the Russian Intelligence service while he was in the Clinton Administration. The charge, which was denied by Talbott, was featured in the blockbuster book, Comrade J, based on interviews with a prominent Russian defector from the U.N.
Talbott wrote a book this year, The Great Experiment, describing his own background in the pro-world government World Federalist Movement and naming a network of friends and close associates that includes former President Bill Clinton and billionaire leftist George Soros. The purpose of Talbott’s book is to promote “global governance,” a euphemism for world government. It is defined in the subtitle as “The Quest for a Global Nation.”
With the nominations of Clinton as Secretary of State and Rice as United Nations Ambassador, Obama’s global agenda is becoming clear. He wants to dramatically expand the power of the U.N., a corrupt global institution that is infested with spies for foreign and hostile interests. Obama’s record in the Senate included sponsorship of the pro-U.N. Global Poverty Act and co-sponsorship of the Jubilee Act. These two foreign aid spending measures alone would cost $920 billion to implement.Obama also wants to pass several controversial U.N. treaties and says that he would consider joining the International Criminal Court, a U.N. institution that could prosecute American soldiers for “war crimes.”
Rice favors establishment of a Department of Defense “peacekeeping institute” so that U.S. soldiers can be trained for U.N. missions. She is also on record in support of “a rapidly deployable international civilian police force,” presumably under the control of the U.N.; favors a United Nations military force to intervene in the Darfur region of Sudan; and is a believer in the man-made global warming theory.
She wrote a 2006 article in The National Interest blaming the terrorist attacks on America on September 11, 2001, on living conditions in oil-rich Saudi Arabia. “For years, Saudi Arabia, home to several 9/11 hijackers, experienced rapidly declining GDP [Gross Domestic Product],” she said.
The article, “The Threat of Global Poverty,” urged “far greater U.S. action to reduce global poverty” and called for the U.S. to spend 0.7 percent of Gross National Income on foreign aid, raising annual foreign aid spending by the U.S. to about $80 billion a year. This view was incorporated in Obama’s Global Poverty Act.
According to the New York Times:
To reinforce his intention to work more closely with the United Nations after the tensions of President Bush’s tenure, Mr. Obama plans to restore the ambassador’s post to cabinet rank, as it was under President Bill Clinton, according to Democrats close to the transition.While the cabinet consists of 15 department heads, a president can give other positions the same rank for the duration of his administration.
Great. Another global governance advocate that will use the UN to further the agenda.
Last but not least, Ms. Rice is considered pro-Israel.
