Embassy Attacks

National Security Adviser Susan Rice is playing a driving role in the decision to shutter U.S. embassies and consulates over a major terror threat, sources tell Fox News, claiming the former diplomat is trying to avoid a repeat of the deadly Benghazi terror attack nearly a year ago. 

Twenty-two U.S. posts were closed over the weekend, and the State Department announced it will keep 19 embassies and consulates closed through Saturday "out of an abundance of caution."
