Rep. Peter King (R-NY), chairman of the House Homeland Security committee, maintained his criticism of UN Ambassador Susan Rice's role in responding to the Benghazi attacks, during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.
"Let me just say, I think Susan Rice has done an effective job as U.N. ambassador, especially on issues such as North Korea,” King said. But he said that on the Sunday talk shows after the attacks, Rice's explanation that she simply followed the talking points handed to her was not a good excuse.
"That assessment was incomplete and she knew it was incomplete," King said. "She has an obligation not to just be a puppet and take what's handed to her.”
