Susan Rice Withdraws from Race for US Secretary of State Becoming an Indirect Victim of Attack on Benghazi US Consulate

Susan Rice, the US ambassador to UN who has withdrawn her name for consideration as US Secretary of State

Susan Rice, 48, the US ambassador to the United Nations, has withdrawn her name for consideration for the position of US secretary of state to become yet another indirect victim of the September 11 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed former US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Rice, 48, has been the US Permanent Representative to the UN since 2009. Her decision to withdraw her name for consideration of becoming America's top diplomat replacing current Hillary Clinton who will step down from her post in January, is seen as having dealt a political blow to President Barack Obama.

Citing "lengthy and disruptive" process, for her decision, Rice, who is very close to the US President pulled out of the running to avoid a revival of the bitter row over the death of America's ambassador to Libya.

The envoy had been the target of Republican attacks on the administration's handling of the raid on the US consulate in Benghazi.

"Those of you who know me know that I'm a fighter, but not at the cost of what's right for our country," Rice wrote on Twitter Thursday.

In her letter to the US President, Rice said: "If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities".

Rice, who seems to have become "a huge political liability for the Obama administration" said she was saddened by the partisan politics surrounding her prospects.

Meanwhile, reacting to Rice's decision, President Obama said in a statement: "Today, I spoke to Ambassador Susan Rice, and accepted her decision to remove her name from consideration for Secretary of State. For two decades, Susan has proven to be an extraordinarily capable, patriotic, and passionate public servant."

He went on to say that Rice's decision to withdraw her name had reflected her strength of character and an ability to rise above politics.

What a great leader you are in times like this.Never you give up.You are far better and wiser than your accusers. Be at peace with yourself. Your time to shine again is by the corner. Let them go with their wicked thoughts.They thought they have won the battle against your advancement but these folks don't even know that God has the last say. God Bless you more and more. We salute your courage.
A large number us Americans are deeply concerned that the true facts of that brutal murder by Libyans of our Accredited Ambassador to Libya, while on assignment inside Libya, are being concealed.

We don't trust the Obama Administration's evasive and ambiguous public positions expressed so far. It's thought that this Susan Rice is lying to protect Obama, by diverting attention away from the true facts of our Ambassador's murder.

It's thought by many here in America that this Susan Rice is earnestly seeking a way to avoid being questioned more carefully in any Congressional investigation conducted in the routine process of her being nominated as a new Secretary of State.

We don't know exactly what facts are being hidden from us Americans.

There are far too many unanswered questions
Here's an interesting Post Script to this Susan Rice/Hillary Clinton/BenGhazi evasion-cover-up situation in Washington D.C. pasted here from the website "PJMedia" here in America.

...End Paste.

These continuing efforts on the part of our current Obama administration seem to indicate that there's a lot that they don't want to reveal about the tragic events surrounding the murder of our Ambassador inside Libya while being accredited to Libya.
