Embassy Attacks

Susan Rice Headed to Hill to Meet Lawmakers

Questions remain over Benghazi spin even as she remains a candidate to replace Hillary Clinton


U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice is meeting Tuesday with lawmakers on Capitol Hill on 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 comes as the White House has signaled it may nominate Rice to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state. Some GOP senators, such as John McCain, R-Ariz., have said they may oppose her nomination because she should have known her statements on the Sept. 11 attack were false.
