Your article, "New concerns arise after Rice, GOP senator meet," (Nov. 29) fails to mention what is generally accepted by insiders in Washington and that is that the Republican strategy behind the character assassination of Susan Rice is an attempt to force President Barack Obama to appoint Sen. John Kerry to fill the position of Secretary of State so that Scott Brown gets another shot at becoming senator from Massachusetts.
I am not surprised that the Republican Party would stoop so low as to trash a patriotic individual in order to advance its political agenda, but I am surprised that Sen. Susan Collins, one of the few reasonable GOP senators still around, would join this unholy cabal.
