When considering Susan Rice for secretary of state, lawmakers should remember that Ms. Rice knew that the president called the attack a terrorist act the day after it occurred. Yet she blindly accepted the intelligence report without questioning its accuracy, staking her reputation on its validity even though it contradicted the president’s position. As secretary of state, she can be expected to be a yes-person to the intelligence community even though faulty intelligence is widely accepted as the cause of the Iraq War.
