Susan Rice

Name: Susan Rice

Career: Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Rice was replaced by Samantha Power.

Background

In December 2012 Sudanese officials and pro-government newspapers expressed relief over Ambassador Susan Rice’s decision to withdraw her name from consideration for the post of US Secretary of State.

Rice told President Barak Obama in a letter that Senate confirmation hearings for her would have been overly contentious. She has came under heavy fire from Republicans in Congress for remarks she made in the aftermath of a September 11 attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Khartoum believes that Rice has maintained a hostile attitude to the government led by president Omar Hassan al-Bashir since her days as US assistant Secretary of state for African Affairs in the 1990’s.

Obama instead promoted the Democratic Party’s 2004 presidential candidate John Kerry from his position as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
