WHEC: “Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s appearance in Rochester has been cancelled. Rice was set to speak at the “Women Helping Girls Conference 2017″ on Saturday at the Theatre on the Ridge. Officials cite a ticketing error.”

“GRAB of AAUW was very much looking forward to hosting Ambassador Susan E. Rice in Rochester to inspire young women who are soon to embark on their chosen careers. Unfortunately, we regret that we must cancel the conference originally scheduled for Saturday, April 8, due to a ticketing error. We apologize to the many young people and members of the Rochester community who were planning to attend tomorrow, and we look forward to welcoming Ambassador Rice, who has graciously offered to speak to our organization in the coming months,” said Dr. Cheryl McKeiver in a release.”

Susan Rice, January, NPR interview: “We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished. Our aim in contemplating the use of force following the use of chemical weapons in August of 2013 was not to intervene in the civil war, not to become involved in the combat between Assad and the opposition, but to deal with the threat of chemical weapons by virtue of the diplomacy that we did with Russia and with the Security Council. We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”

Another one goes back to the woods.
