Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice defended the Obama Administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, departing from the many conservatives who have accused the White House of mishandling its response to the attack, or worse, covering up its incompetence.
“When things are unfolding very, very quickly, it’s not always easy to know what is really going on on the ground,” Rice told Fox News host Greta Van Susteren.
Condi continued: “So there’s a big picture to be examined here. But we don’t have all of the pieces, and I think it’s easy to try and jump to conclusions about what might have happened here. It’s probably better to let the relevant bodies do their work.”
