US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice

After all the criticism of Senator John McCain against United Nation Ambassador Susan Rice since her initial remarks on Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, McCain changed his mind and he will stay out of her way if President Obama trusted her capability and nominate her to be U.S. State Secretary. He will also consider to "discuss these issues" that has been on every headline of the newspapers in the world.

McCain's initials comments about Rice statement after Benghazi attack was, " "I will do everything in my power to block her from being the United States secretary of state. She has proven that she either doesn't understand, or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. There is no doubt five days later what this attack was and for."

This came when Rice told reporters on the Sunday shows: "“As a senior U.S. diplomat, I agreed to a White House request to appear on the Sunday shows to talk about the full range of national security issues of the day, which at that time were primarily and particularly the protests that were enveloping and threatening many diplomatic facilities – American diplomatic facilities – around the world and Iran’s nuclear program,” Rice told reporters at a press briefing at the United Nations. ”The attack on … our facilities in Benghazi was obviously a significant piece of this.”

Rice statements was base on information provided by the intelligence community. She said that the attack where four Americans were killed was the result of on going protest in Middle East.

By that time a movie which mocked Muslim prophet Mohammad angered Muslim nations that leads to a widely protest.

“My judgment at this time is that four Americans were killed and that the information that the U.N. ambassador conveyed was clearly false,” McCain told reporters earlier this month. “There’s overwhelming evidence that it was completely false, and she should have known what the situation and circumstances were and not tell the world [incorrect information] on all the Sunday morning talk shows.

President Obama slammed McCain during his first press conference since his re-elections. He became emotional and not happy to McCain's remarks to fellow deplomats who are just doing their job as the representative of United States.

"If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after someone, they should go after me," Obama said. "And I'm happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the United Nations ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intel she had received, and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous."

Rice is also willing to meet McCain and discuss this sensitive topic that melted every Americans heart. Families and friends still shouting for justice for the love ones they lost in the attack in Benghazi.

“Let me be very clear: I have great respect for Sen. McCain and his service to our country. I always have and I always will,” said Rice. “I do think that some of the statements he’s made about me have been unfounded, but I look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him.”
