Republican Senator: “More Disturbed” Than Before Meeting with Susan Rice


by Sharon Rondeau

Sen. Lindsey Graham was one of three Republican senators who met with United Nations Amb. Susan Rice to ask her why she insisted that the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghaz was a protest

(Nov. 27, 2012) — The Atlantic is the only source reporting on the meeting between Susan Rice and three Republican senators this morning on Capitol Hill quoting Sen. Lindsey Graham as having commented, “I’m more disturbed now than I was before.”

The meeting was to give Rice an opportunity to explain her comments made on five Sunday talk shows on September 16, 2012 following the violent attack in Benghazi, Libya which killed four Americans.  At issue is why she maintained that the attack was caused by a spontaneous protest rather than terrorist activity, which the intelligence community stated it knew within 24 hours.

At 2: 43 p.m. EST, the other available coverage states that the meeting has yet to occur.

Update, 3:32 p.m. EST:  A different report on the meeting between Rice and the senators states that Rice “did not help herself” during the exchange (h/t Martha Trowbridge).
