Statement from Rep. Karen Bass on Ambassador Rice

Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA), Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights released the following statement today regarding Ambassador Susan Rice:

"I fully respect Ambassador Rice's decision to remove her name from consideration for Secretary of State. Her more than two decades of experience promoting peace and security in regions plagued by instability and crisis made her extraordinarily qualified to serve as America's top diplomat. As U.N. Ambassador, Ambassador Rice was steadfast in advancing America's national security interests, among many accomplishments helping to secure international support for sanctions against our adversaries and support for human rights around the world. It is unfortunate Ambassador Rice had to make this decision in the face of such unfounded and unfair character attacks. If judged fairly based solely on her qualifications for the job, she would've made an extraordinary Secretary of State."
