Susan Rice Isn’t at Fault in Benghazi Attacks

May 15 (Bloomberg) -- So it turns out that Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and, before a group of leading Senate Republicans decided that she was evil incarnate, a top contender to replace Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, had nothing to do with formulating the White House’s response to the fatal attacks last year at the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

You could be forgiven for believing otherwise. In fact, you could be forgiven for believing that Rice had been personally assigned by President Barack Obama to pull a guard-duty shift at the mission that night but slept through her assignment, given the level of hatred subsequently directed her way.
