Of Course: Susan ‘Benghazi Was Caused By Anger Over a YouTube Video’ Rice Honored for ‘Work in Advancing U.S. Interests’

Five days after Benghazi, Susan Rice was still out lying her ass off about the real reason behind the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Libya. Apparently that was enough to qualify Rice for a “Great American Award”:

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice will be honored Tuesday night with the 2013 Louis E. Martin Great American Award.

The annual award, presented by The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, is given to “an exemplar of change, progress and coalition-building across racial lines,” according to a press release.

Specifically, the organization is honoring Rice for “her work in advancing U.S. interests, strengthening the world’s common security and prosperity, and promoting respect for human rights,” another press release states.

Change the reasoning to “for her diligent work in advancing the interests of the Obama administration as well as Hillary’s 2016 campaign” and the award might be deserved.

How did somebody who knowingly lied to downplay Al Qaeda involvement in an attack “strengthen the world’s security”? Gotta love liberal think tanks — or not.
