Defiant Obama to appoint Susan Rice as National Security Adviser

Tom Donilon, Obama’s national security adviser has resigned.  President Obama continues his  ‘in your face’ style of politics by replacing Donilon with United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice to the position.

susan_riceThe appointment, which Mr. Obama plans to make on Wednesday afternoon, puts Ms. Rice, 48, an outspoken diplomat and a close political ally, at the heart of the administration’s foreign-policy apparatus.

It is also a defiant gesture to Republicans who harshly criticized Ms. Rice for presenting an erroneous account of the deadly attacks on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya. The post of national security adviser, while powerful, does not require Senate confirmation.
