No shocker here.
(CNN)—Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who drew heavy criticism from Republicans over her statements after the September attacks on a U.S. diplomatic mission, withdrew her name from consideration for secretary of state on Thursday.
In a letter to President Barack Obama, she said “the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive, and costly—to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities. That trade-off is simply not worth it to our country.”
Nobody in the Administration, including Obama, wanted Rice to have to answer for her lies about Benghazi under oath during confirmation hearings.
