Susan Rice Receives 'Four Pinnochios' From The Post For Claims About Syrian Chemical Weapons

Susan Rice Receives 'Four Pinnochios' From The Post For Claims About Syrian Chemical Weapons:

"On Monday morning, former national security adviser Susan Rice earned the worst-possible rating with The Washington Post’s fact-checker for her claims that the Obama administration had convinced the Syrian government to “voluntarily and verifiably” surrender its supply of chemical weapons.

 “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,” she boasted in a January interview with NPR. “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”

The Post, however, found fault with her claim, pointing to “continued chemical-weapons attacks by Syria” and giving her “four Pinocchios,” the worst rating on their scale."
