Why Did Obama Bring Back Susan Rice Back as National Security Advisor?

Why Did Obama Bring Back  Susan Rice Back as National Security Advisor?

     The person who went on five Sunday news shows following the Benghazi terrorist attack
with the excuse that it was because of a video has been promoted by President Obama
to head of national secuirty.  Why in the midst of all the controversary and unanswered
questions about the attack that cost four American lives would Obama hire one of the
central figures in Benghazi?

      As Michelle Malkin says, it's not just a poke in the collective American eye
but a middle finger that Obama is giving us and especially the families of the four
soldiers who died in the raid September 11, 2012 after security  and later
jet fighters denied the chance to save the mens' lives. 

      For Obama,the rationale is
 1) he's telling us that everything is ok, that Susan Rice did a good job
with respect to Benghazi and everything else. (Obama did say as much in his speech
to announce her appointment June 5. She will take over in July for a man who neither 
she got along with nor did the military,
2)  By giving Rice a nice position, Obama shouldn't  have to worry about her saying
anything against the administration , such as how and why and who gave her the 'video' 
talking points .  she probably wouldn't anyway, as she's had eight months to 'own up' about
what happened and defend her position. By not saying anything, Rice is, in effect, saying
'it's ok' even though it wasn't initially HER words. But, by not saying anything, she
is complicit by her silence.
3) furthermore, Rice has NOT had a distinquished track record during her 20 years in 
high administration positions, regardless
of what Obama says  .   She has come under fire more than one other time for neglect.

Re the IRS scandal, many are talking  about getting rid of the whole IRS in favor
of a flat tax or some other less government-intrusive system. When the governing body
can't even come up with receipts to delineate the $4 million spent on a party
in Anaheim, CA nor the $150 million spent on other social functions.    Senator Ted Cruz of
Texas has introduced such a proposal for which you can sign a petition.
