Susan Rice: Tel Aviv bus bombing not a ‘spontaneous reaction to a video’

In an out-of-character move, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice condemned today’s bus bombing in Tel Aviv as a “terrorist attack.”

Amb. Rice does seem to like condescending pats on the head. She prefers them from President Obama, but hey, this one will have to do.

But is she sure that this knock-you-over-the-head obvious terror attack in Israel wasn’t a “spontaneous reaction to a video“?

For now, it’s a terrorist attack. But, you know, official talking points are subject to heavy revision.

    Obama: Buses in Tel Aviv were “Deciminated”. But let me make this perfectly clear….it was really only one.

    • TexSizzle

      Maybe he thinks there were ten before this one was blown up. No, that couldn’t be it; he doesn’t know the real meaning of “decimated”.

    She acknowledged it was a terrorist attack. I wish a lot of you would do the same when the Jared loughners James Holmes the Guy in NY that was busted for putting pipebombs in home depot, the would be twilight killer,etc.commit their acts. Leave the woman alone.

    • CB19

      Yeah tough call. Hard to determine especially since Hamas started handing out candy afterward.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      why should we leave her alone? Because she’s a woman? Because she is really good at her job? why? If we have learned anything about the mess we are in it is this: Don’t let these sneaky lying politicians get any further up the ladder where they can do more damage. So I personally will be not leaving her alone.

    They will probably try to find a way to blame it on tweets from @IDFSPOKESPERSON. Failing that there is alway Bush!

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      And don’t forget Reagan, who, uh. . . .uh. . . . SQUIRREL!

  • Penmar

    They can acknowledge a terrorist attack as long as it’s against anyone but Americans. Because Obama sent the terrorists back from whence they came, but the Israelis not so much.

    Looks like someone is trying to prove they are not incompetent. Too Late Susan.

  • TexasMeow

    So now that the Obama Administration has labeled the Hamas attacks as “Terrorist” Attacks. That is the “Thumbs Up” signal to the left leaning media to do the same. You should be seeing an about face real soon from them now.

  • No Longer Amazed

    She really is shooting for that State position, isn’t she?

  • digitalPimple

    What a joke. Stand there on TV, lie directly to the American people then have the nerve to ask for public office representing all the people of the US? No thanks hun. Train left that station.

    • nc

      It’s really as simple as that.

  • Jerry J Brown

    She’a gonna be secratary of state like it or not. Only need senate approval. Dems have 55 votes if they want. Something to look forward to.

    • TJ

      Don’t even need the 60. She will get a Recess appointment and the Dirty Harry will go right along with it. with or without O even putting her name up for consideration. One weekend that pushes if the house was even in recess.

    • JustLikeAnimals

      Yep, all she had to do was come out and say this so that Dems who vote her up to SecState can say she answered the questions publicly and cleared up the confusion BEFORE she was nominated. Bet she gets nominated tomorrow (Friday) while everyone is out of town. Monday at the latest.

      Just sayin’

    • michael s

      I hope so.

  • John Kerry’s Forehead

    America is doomed.

  • JettieG

    Trying to get your face out there, SuzyQ? You’ve been incompetent as UN amb, you played the patsy for the Benghazi murders and now you’re trying to suck up to the SoS role? Sorry, you’ve been a failure on world issues for years (remember Rwanda?) I can say this straight coz I’m a chick.

  • TocksNedlog

    And of course, by attempting to salvage her reputation she is admitting that it is tarnished; and, by extension, is tacitly admitting that it was largely her own actions (or, in her case, inaction — read: willful blindness) that caused it to become tarnished.

    I think it was in response to the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special, but the intel is fluid and preliminary, so as the investigation progresses we’ll know more, but, no, this is not a terrorist attack. It is a spontaneous protest against Charlie Brown.

    Egypt’s Morsi is head of a Muslim extremist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, who claim to control Hezbollah and Hamas, which are designated by the US as terrorist organizations.

    Hillary goes to Cairo and gets Morsi to tell Hezbollah and Hamas to stop shelling Israel in exchange for extra cash from Washington. Then threatens Israel to withdraw funding for Iron Dome if Israel puts boots on the ground to deal with continued attacks from terroists in Gaza.

    Newsflash: US drops “we will not negotiate with terrorists” policy, provides protection for Hamas against Israel.

    Attention terrorists: Need free cash? Threaten to bomb the US or it’s allies. You can get fast cash in your account by tomorrow, hand delivered by Hillary Clinton!!!!!!

    Nice one, Barack Hussein!!!. Nice one.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      yes isn’t that great? Idiots. That’s their version of good foreign policy. it’s sick.

  • RightThinking1

    Uh, oh. Now I am in a quandary.

    My every instinct is to suspect *anything* that Rice says, thus my own conclusion that the bombing was an act of homicidal maniacs is called into question.

    But seriously…, this is clearly an attempt to re-establish some credibility for Rice…, no, wait…, there never really was any credibility…

  • JustLikeAnimals

    A good article regarding Rice’s tenure and integrity as a US diplomat:

  • Red Fred

    Oh my. Let’s give her the Nobel Peace Prize. Geez…

  • Red Fred

    Oh my. Let’s give her the Nobel Peace Prize. Geez…

  • Zach Peterson

    The tel aviv bus bomb was due to a racist Charlie brown thanks giving video. Everyone knows that. Duh.

  • NathanMBickel

    Rice knows she will be asked questions to cough up, by the Congressional committee investigating Obama’s Benghazi scandal. She’s now making a big show trying to be tough rather than the patsy she was when she lied for Obama.

    If you wish; you can check out my further thoughts on this, by viewing my today’s (self) authored blog, highlighted with a couple of pics. Just Google the following title:
