Greta Van Susteren: No 'robot' for national security adviser

Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren wrote on her Gretawire blog Wednesday that President Obama should avoid appointing UN Ambassador Susan Rice as his next national security adviser if it means having "a robot" in his cabinet.

"With Benghazi, Ambassador Rice let down the American people by never challenging the information she was given and which she just simply spread across five Sunday morning show," Van Susteren wrote. "Apparently she just did what she was told. That is lousy. We don’t need a robot as National Security Adviser."

Rice gained notoriety after appearing on Sunday news shows in 2012 where she said the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi stemmed from protests against an anti-Islam YouTube video. The Obama administration maintained that Rice was simply repeating White House talking points she was provided on the matter...

"We need a National Security Adviser who has the stamina to questions and the courage to challenge what she is told," Van Susteren continued. "I hope she now understands that and can do it.  National Security Adviser is not a job for an amateur."

Obama is set to officially appoint Rice as his national security adviser Wednesday afternoon.
