Everyone knows that Susan Rice and the rest of her gang leaked, lied and helped push a phony narrative about President Trump. Now CNN”s Wolf Blitzer had her on and she tried to go after President Trump but missed badly and indicted Obama instead.
Here is part of the transcript: Rice: “I am doubtful ultimately it will prove to be the right thing. In the first instance, any of us familiar with Qasem Soleimani and the extraordinary blood on his hands has to be happy to see him off the battlefield. He was a murderer and terrorist of the first order. Having said that, whether we and Americans around the world are safer as a result of his targeted assassination than they would have been had we pursued other means to deal with what was purportedly the imminent threat at hand. I am not sure about that. I am not sure as I look at this, there are other ways to de-escalate this situation.”
Blitzer: “Do you trust what you’re hearing from the Trump administration right now, the initial information about the intelligence assessments?”
Rice: “I wish I could. This administration, sadly, tragically, has a record of almost daily misrepresenting the facts, telling falsehoods about issues big and very small. It’s hard to have confidence on the face of their representations. I’d like to see the evidence. I’d like to see the details behind the information that apparently led to this attack. Certainly, what Qasem Soleimani has done and Iran’s record would support what the administration is saying, not the least in the recent context, but one cannot be certain without seeing the facts.”
Sadly for Rice, history remembers what former President Obama did and now would be a good time to remind her. Obama arguably, violated the War Powers Act with his blunder in Libya which was not in response to any planned attack. In other words, Obama and Rice are not the ones to be trusted.
PJ Media also reported that President Obama’s war on Libya, which was unauthorized by Congress, unprovoked by any attack or threatened attack on the US, and was unwanted by Americans.
Despite the fact that Obama’s war in Libya wasn’t in response to any attack or threat, Obama actually argued the War Powers Act didn’t apply because “U.S. operations do not involve sustained fighting or active exchanges of fire with hostile forces, nor do they involve U.S. ground troops.”
Many experts, however, disagreed. Bruce Ackerman, a professor of law and political science at Yale, argued in an op-ed in the New York Times on June 20, 2011, that Obama had indeed violated the War Powers Act, and was engaging in an illegal war.
“It has now been over three months since the first NATO bombs fell on Libya, yet President Obama has failed to request Congressional approval for military action, as required by the War Powers Act of 1973,” Ackerman wrote. “The legal machinations Mr. Obama has used to justify war without Congressional consent set a troubling precedent that could allow future administrations to wage war at their convenience — free of legislative checks and balances.”
Member of Congress on both sides called the War in Libya a violation of the War Powers Act, and it even prompted a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers to sue the Obama administration over its constitutionality.
President Trump’s authority to respond to the attack on the U.S. Embassy, however, was constitutionally justified. “[Soleimani] was a combatant,” Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz explained on Breitbart News Tonight on Sirius XM. “There’s no doubt that he fit the description of ‘combatant.’ He [was] a uniformed member of an enemy military who was actively planning to kill Americans; American soldiers and probably, as well, American civilians.”
