Former Romney aide Richard Grenell’s tweet suggests that a bit of governmental housecleaning may be afoot.

Secretary of State Clinton certainly isn’t above reproach when it comes to her role in the U.S. response to the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. But Ambassador Susan Rice, being on a lower rung of the government ladder, is a more vulnerable target in the blame game. The Obama Administration has shown itself to have no qualms about tossing officials under the bus, so if Rice’s number has indeed come up, no one should be surprised. Perhaps this was what the two women discussed last week when they ditched Benjamin Netanyahu’s UN speech.
