Human rights groups are blasting the Obama administration after officials refused to confirm whether National Security Adviser Susan Rice raised the plight of a dissident with Chinese diplomats this week.
The Obama administration is calling on Congress to fully repeal the war authorization in Iraq to ensure that no U.S. troops return to the country, which is under siege by the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS).
White House national security adviser Susan Rice petitioned Speaker of the House John Boehner (R., Ohio) in a letter Friday to completely repeal the war authorization, officially known as the Authorization for Use of Military Force in Iraq, or AUMF.
Previously unreleased internal Obama administration emails show that a coordinated effort was made in the days following the Benghazi terror attacks to portray the incident as “rooted in [an] Internet video, and not [in] a broader failure or policy.”
Susan Rice, national security adviser to President Barack Obama, said on Friday that the administration still believes there is a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine as Russian troops mobilized along the country’s entire eastern border.
My must read of the day is “Sunday Show Round Up: Ukraine and Benghazi,” in the Washington Free Beacon.
Ukraine was the primary focus of each Sunday news program as protestors and the government move towards a transitional government.
