Statement by National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice on the Killing of Salwa Bugaighis

The United States strongly condemns yesterday's brutal and senseless murder of human rights and civil society activist Salwa Bugaighis in Benghazi, Libya. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to meet Salwa in Libya in November 2011, soon after the ouster of Qadhafi.

It's an old American saying: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!" President Obama's National Security Adviser went on another Sunday show last weekend. She proceeded to tell the nation and the world that the AWOL U.S. Army soldier held for five years by the Taliban, Bowe Bergdahl, had served "honorably, and with distinction." She defended the Obama administration's decision to trade five of the worst detainees at Guantanamo Bay for this soldier.
