BOSTON (CBS) – Susan Rice, who has found herself under heavy criticism over her role in unmasking names of U.S. citizens while serving under President Obama, recently talked about the personal attacks launched on her by the right in an interview with New York Magazine. During the discussion, Rice claims that her gender and race could be a part of why she has taken so much heat from Republicans. At least she didn’t blame it on a video! Do you buy Rice’s claim that the criticism is due to sexism and racism? Or is that simply an excuse she’s using to try to deflect attention away from her role in unmasking names?
