Rice Faulted for Congo Crisis

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice -- facing down critics over the attacks in Benghazi and the Keystone XL Pipeline -- is now coming under fire for her role in the administration's failure to take action against the atrocities and brutal killings in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the New York Times reports.

"Specifically, these critics -- who include officials of human rights organizations and United Nations diplomats -- say the administration has not put enough pressure on Rwanda's president, Paul Kagame, to end his support for the rebel movement whose recent capture of the strategic city of Goma in Congo set off a national crisis in a country that has already lost more than three million people in more than a decade of fighting. Rwanda's support is seen as vital to the rebel group, known as M23."
