Remember President Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice? The one who continually lied to the American public that the attack on the Benghazi consulate was the result of a YouTube video? Yes, the same national security adviser that reclassified her “lie” as “in some respects, not to be a hundred percent correct.”
Okay, well, that Susan Rice is now advising President Trump not to lie because it could put America’s security at risk. In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Rice complained that Trump’s “false statements” about wiretapping represent a “disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security."
"When the American people question the commander in chief's statements, his ability to harness public support to confront a national crisis is undermined.
“The foundation of the United States' unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military might. It is also grounded in the perception that the United States is steady, rational and fact-based.
"To lead effectively, the United States must maintain respect and trust. So, when a White House deliberately dissembles and serially contorts the facts, its actions pose a serious risk to America's global leadership, among friends and adversaries alike…
“The United States' words matter."
Hmmm, where was this Susan Rice just a few years ago?
Another case of “do as I say, not as I do.”
