On “60 Minutes” Sunday, National Security Adviser Susan Rice stood by her media performance immediately following the 2012 attacks on an American consulate in Benghazi.
“I don’t have time to think about the false controversy,” Rice said, when questioned about the interviews she gave to a round of political Sunday shows. “In the midst of all of swirl about things like talking points, the administration has been working very, very hard across the globe to review our security of our embassies and our facilities. That’s what we ought to be focused on.”
Rice, who at the time was the ambassador to the U.N., was heavily criticized, mostly by Republicans, for claiming that the attacks were spontaneous and provoked by an anti-Muslim YouTube video. Evidence in the aftermath indicate they were planned terrorist attacks.
