Dana Loesch absolutely crushed former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice after she was appointed Wednesday to the Netflix board of directors.

“The perfect place for a former staffer who blamed a terror attack on a poorly-made short film released long before said attack took place,” the Conservative commentator tweeted in response to the Rice news.

“We are delighted to welcome Ambassador Rice to the Netflix board,” NetflixCEO Reed Hastings said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “For decades, she has tackled difficult, complex global issues with intelligence, integrity and insight and we look forward to benefiting from her experience and wisdom.”

Rice served as the National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama. She became the focus of numerous headlines after she falsely blamed a terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 that left four Americans dead on an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

“Based on the best information we have to date, what our assessment is as of the present, is in fact it began spontaneously in Benghazi, as a reaction to what had transpired hours earlier in Cairo, where of course as you know there was a violent protest outside of our embassy, sparked by this hateful video,” Rice claimed on all the Sunday talk shows. “We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or pre-planned.”

Her comments stood in contrast to what U.S. Intelligence officials at the time believed, which was that the attack was pre-planned and pre-meditated by radical Islamic terrorists in the area.
