Here’s K.T. McFarland on Susan Rice’s appointment to head up the NSC:
I spent seven years working for the most successful NSC Adviser in history, Henry Kissinger.
I watched him conceive new policies, negotiate with foreign leaders, ride herd over the bureaucracy, massage the press and foreign policy intelligentsia, work behind the scenes with congressional leaders.
Susan Rice can’t do any of those things.[Emphasis in the original, because dayum.]
But she can make the media rounds and spew total lies with a straight face for three hours running. Which seems to be what this Administration’s real interest is in doing. There is no national interest; there is only political advantage.
