Serial liar, Susan Rice, was FINALLY called out by the Media (D) for her allergy to the truth.
Was it about the Obama administration’s surveillance on President Trump?
No, the Media (D) won’t touch that.
Was it about her comments on another YouTube video?
The Washington Post’s Fact Checker gave Rice ‘4 Pinocchios’ regarding her statement about the chemical weapons in Syria.
Rice had said that the Obama administration removed them, but she used ‘coded language’ to muddy the meaning.
The fact that Syrians were gassed with Sarin last week didn’t alone give Rice a bad rating by the Post, but rather that she used coded language to speak about only certain chemical weapons, as other government sources publicly noted their continued existence in the war torn state.

‘We have a reasonable person test here at The Fact Checker, and it’s doubtful many NPR listeners realized that “known” was code for the fact that Rice was only referring to chemical weapons stocks declared by Syria – or that chlorine weapons were not covered by the agreement,’ the Post’s Fact Checker pointed ou

Washington Post’s big news is that Susan Rice lies.
Maybe now that they’ve caught her parsing her language regarding chemical weapons in Syria they could check out her statements about surveillance on Trump and his associates by the Obama administration.
