Chaffetz: Susan Rice a 'Terrible Choice' for National Security Advisor

Chaffetz: Susan Rice a 'Terrible Choice' for National Security Advisor

On the heels of news that Obama will appoint Susan Rice as his next National Security Advisor, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said Rice is probably a “nice person, but she lacks judgment.”

He added, “She claims to have read the daily intelligence brief [yet] anyone who was following what was happening in Libya would have known terrorism was likely a factor in the incident in Benghazi.” 

Because she didn’t recognize this and continues to make excuses for blaming Benghazi on a spontaneous protest, Chaffetz said Rice is “a terrible choice to lead the president’s national security staff.”

He said: “It’s curious the president selected her for a position that does not require Senate confirmation; there is no way she could get through that process.” 

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) took a more gentle tact, tweeting: “Obviously I disagree w/ POTUS appointment of Susan Rice as Nat’l Security advisor, but I’ll make every effort to work w/ her on imp’t issues.”
