U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice is guilty of lying on behalf of President Obama to the American public, and the world, about the events in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12, that led to the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. That is a fact, which in itself absolutely disqualifies Rice from being nominated to become U.S. Secretary of State. Lyndon LaRouche in his November 30, 2012 webcast has brought additional focus on Rice’s activities against the populations of African nations, first as a government official from 1993-2001 under President Clinton, and currently as ambassador to the UN for the last four years under Obama, telling his audience, that “she’s well known from back twenty years or so ago, as a mass murderer in Africa.”
Two of the clearest cases where Rice’s involvement in supporting policies that have led to the deaths of millions and the weakening of those nations’ sovereignty are: the Democratic Republic of the Congo (D.R.C.), and Sudan, the two largest nations on the continent, before the break-up of Sudan in 2011. This has resulted in a permanent destabilization of the countries of the Great Lakes region and parts of the Horn of Africa.
