Just when you thought there might be come understanding and toning down of the rhetoric in whole Benghazi Libya debacle between Senate Republicans and the White House, that unfortunately isn't going to be the case. US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, along with acting CIA director Michael Morell, met with John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Kelly Ayotte today to try and iron out troubling questions about what really happened when 4 Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens we killed by terrorists in Libya on September 11, 2012.

The 3 Senators that met with Rice and Morell for an hour, instead of feeling like they got their questions answered, are now coming out and saying they are even more troubled by the comments made by Susan Rice on the 5 Sunday morning talk shows she went on and claimed that the attack was the spontaneous result of an anti-Muslim video.

While Rice admitted her comments on those shows were wrong, the 3 Senators were not at all satisfied with the answers they received in the 1 hour closed door meeting today. it certainly makes you wonder if we will ever get the real story about what actually happened in Libya and what exactly Obama and his cohorts are in fact, hiding.

Emerging from a closed-door meeting Tuesday, three Republican senators said they are more troubled than ever with the comments made days after the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Libya by Ambassador Susan Rice, President Obama’s possible choice secretary of state.

Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte met privately with Rice and acting CIA Director Michael Morell for more than an hour on her much-maligned explanations, which primarily consisted of blaming a YouTube video for a “spontaneous” demonstration that spun out of control.

Ayotte said Rice admitted to the lawmakers that her comments in five Sunday talk shows were wrong.  However, that failed to mollify the senators, who have talked about blocking her nomination if the president taps her to succeed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“We are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn’t get concerning evidence that was leading up to the attack on the consulate, and the tragic death of four brave Americans and whether Ambassador Rice was prepared, or informed sufficiently, to give the American people the correct depiction of the events that took place,” McCain told reporters.
