Rice Meeting Troubles GOP Senators

Susan Rice didn’t do a very good job assuaging three Republican senators’ concerns about her explanation of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya. In fact, after a closed-door meeting with the U.N. ambassador Tuesday, Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Kelly Ayotte were left even more worried than before. According to Senator Ayotte, Rice said she was wrong in claiming on national television that the attack had been spurred by a spontaneous demonstration. Rice’s comments, however, were not made immediately after the attack but five days later with the help of intelligence.
