Susan Rice, Scourge of Africa, May Become Secretary of State
Black Agenda Report
Rice has been intimately involved in covering up the deaths of more than six million Congolese, and has cultivated close relations with every US-backed tyrant on the continent.
“That’s the kind of ruthless, bloodthirsty, lying, hypocrite she is.”
At this point it seems six of one, half-a-dozen of the other as to who’ll be president come 2021. The election hasn’t been certified yet. Trump has sued to keep Pennsylvania from certifying their results, and there will be recounts in Georgia and probably at least one other state. If Biden drops below the 270 electors required to win, or this isn’t settled by December 8, the decision goes to the House where each state delegation gets one vote and Trump wins because there are more red states than blue states, just barely. With Mitch McConnell and Republicans standing behind Trump’s legal right to challenge results, this seems far from over, and the scenario Greg Palast laid out in “How Trump Stole the 2020 Election ” seems less and less farfetched.
But let’s stop fidgeting over election news long enough to imagine Joe Biden in the Oval Office. If he gets there, it’s quite likely that one of the worst people on the planet—Susan Rice—will become his Secretary of State. In 2011, as Obama’s National Security Advisor, Rice traveled to Libya to congratulate US proxies on the total destruction of the Libyan state, the most prosperous in Africa because it was sovereign over its own vast reserves of light sweet crude, oil that needs only the most minimal refining. After Gaddafi was gruesomely executed and Hillary Clinton cackled, “We came, we saw, he died,” the Waha Group (Marathon, ConocoPhillips and Amerada Hess) said that they were encouraged by an apparent “sea change in the NOC’s attitude toward its U.S. partners.”
“It’s quite likely that one of the worst people on the planet—Susan Rice—will become his Secretary of State.”
China had a lot of construction contracts in Libya too, and much of what it had constructed was blown to smithereens.
So Susan Rice had a lot to celebrate when she arrived on the ground in Libya. But instead she bragged that the US had stopped genocide. That’s the kind of ruthless, bloodthirsty, lying, hypocrite she is.
Then she flew on to Rwanda to meet with President Paul Kagame and crow that the US “got it right this time.” By that she meant that the Clinton Administration, in which she served first on the National Security Council and then as Under Secretary of State for African Affairs, had failed to intervene to stop genocide in Rwanda, but that it had learned its lesson and stopped it in Libya.
But in fact President Bill Clinton didn’t stand by during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. Through his UN Ambassador Madeleine Albright, he made sure that UN troops were withdrawn from Rwanda till the bloodbath was over and Paul Kagame, one of the USA’s yes men in Africa, seized power.
Allan Stam, University of Virginia Professor of Public Policy and Politics , spent ten years researching the Rwandan Genocide with University of Michigan Political Science Professor Christian Davenport . In Stam’s presentation “Understanding the Rwandan Genocide ,” he said that the Pentagon had imagined that the cost of installing Kagame might be 250,000 Rwandan lives, but instead it cost something closer to a million. Susan Rice is infamous for saying at the time, “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November (congressional) election? ”
