Embassy Attacks

GOP Senators' Concerns over Rice Grow After Meeting

Say she should have known her comments about the Benghazi consulate attacks were not true


After meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Tuesday, three GOP lawmakers say their concerns have only grown about the diplomat's misleading statements she made about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that left the ambassador and three other Americans dead.

The meeting with Sens. John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Kelly Ayotte on Capitol Hill came as the White House has signaled it may nominate Rice to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of State.

McCain, R-Ariz., has said he may oppose her nomination because she should have known her statements on the Sept. 11 attack were false.
