Rice ADMITS unmasking officials over UAE meeting

President Obama's National Security Advisor Susan Rice told Congressional investigators she 'unmasked' the identity of top officials over an undisclosed meeting they had with the prince of the United Arab Emirates, CNN has learned. 

Rice told members of the House Intelligence Committee last week that she requested names of Americans to be revealed internally after the UAE's crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan arrived in New York last December without notifying the US government.

The crown prince had met with officials including the president's ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, his son-in-law Jared Kushner and another now-former White House official, Steve Bannon, sources told CNN. 

The effort preceded the UAE trying to set up a backchannel between Russia and the incoming administration.
