Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice is having the distinct displeasure of watching her entire life implode this week. Since the story broke that she was allegedly responsible for revealing the names of American citizens caught up in wiretaps, and possibly leaking them, she has gone from completely unknown to a household name; and not the cool viral video way.
At this point liberals and even Rice herself aren’t really denying that the names were revealed, they’re just trying to come up with a good cover story. They are saying that it was her job (which is a departure from her original story, which was that she knew nothing about it) and that there was nothing illegal about it.
However, according to retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, this just isn’t done.
“The national security adviser person is a manager position, not an analyst position,” he said. “You have analysts in the intelligence community whose job is to sort through who is doing what with what. Susan Rice is a senior manager looking over the entire intelligence community. She should not have time to be unmasking individuals having conversations. It’s insane. It’s never done.”
Ex-CIA analyst Fred Fleitz agreed in a Fox News op-ed.
“Rice’s denials don’t add up,” Fleitz wrote. “It is hard to fathom how the demasking of multiple Trump campaign and transition officials was not politically motivated.”
So, should we believe the official with skin in the game or the outside sources that say she should be held accountable? Think about it like this; if there is a fox guarding the hen house, and hens stop showing up for work, who do you ask about it? Well the guard, of course. If that guard has blood and feathers around her mouth, but denies that she ate any chickens, I guess you could believe her. If when pressed she does admit to eating the chickens, but only in the line of duty, what would you do? First, you’d kick yourself for hiring a fox, and then you’d run the dirty liar off. That’s what you’d do, and that’s what we should do as well.
