It’s Elementary!

From DeadlineUSA Blog at The Guardian:

Will Condoleezza Rice be dogged for the rest of her life by questions about her role in the Bush administration’s harsh interrogation policies?

Last week, Rice was confronted by a student at Stanford University student who asked her if the near-drowning technique known as waterboarding is torture.

Yesterday, Rice was forced on the defensive by a Bethesda, Maryland, grade-schooler.

According to the Washington Post, Misha Lerner, a fourth grader at the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital asked Rice to comment on President Obama’s rejection of Bush-era interrogation methods.


Original game box.

She replied:

    Let me just say that President Bush was very clear that he wanted to do everything he could to protect the country. After September 11, we wanted to protect the country. But he was also very clear that we would do nothing, nothing, that was against the law or against our obligations internationally. So the president was only willing to authorize policies that were legal in order to protect the country.

Last week, she told the Stanford student, in an exchange caught on video and widely viewed on youtube, that none of the “enhanced interrogation techniques” used under the Bush administration were illegal, because Bush had approved them. “By definition, if it was authorised by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Convention Against Torture,” she said.

  1. The question was asked: Will Condoleezza Rice be dogged for the rest of her life by questions about her role in the Bush administration’s harsh interrogation policies?

    The Answer: I hope so!

    Condi looked pissed off that students were grilling her on the topic. She’s used to only having to answer to the Decider…. 4th graders can be a tough bunch.

    • i hope the question follows her for the rest of her life. she’s used to having to explain things to chimpy. she found out that 4th graders are more intelligent, so she had to work harder.

      by the way, fran, did it appear to you that condi doesn’t look well? to me, her face looked bloated and swollen, especially around the eyes. here’s a pic of her at the school. there are a few like that, and she looks like crap in all of them. maybe the reality of what she was a part of is starting to get to her.

      • She looks like crap because she no longer has a team of hair and make-up artists to cover the swelling and splotchiness that oozes from the evil within her.
        She looks exactly as she is–angry, brittle, sanctimonious and guilty.
        This is not a woman at peace.
        GOOD!

    It’s nice to see you address Condo and her skewed logic Nonnie. It’s pretty pathetic that they have to still protect BushCo in order to protect themselves.

    I hope like Alberto..she will not ever find gainful employment.

    Karma has to bite these fuckers in the ass someday doesn’t it?

    Your graphics are always a joy to behold! ;)

    • i honestly don’t know why she just doesn’t keep her mouth shut and go home. every time she and cheney and the others open their filthy mouths, they sink themselves a little more. i don’t know what they think they’re accomplishing. people hate them.

  3. Is that Condi or Mike Tyson ? Daaaaaaaaaag. You think she might want to go topless in on a beach in Antigua or some place rather than put herself in front of some more kids and microphones. Seems Amy Winehouse is doing better than Condi…

    • :lol: amy winehouse seems to be looking better than condi, too! i totally agree, rastamick. like i said to dusty above, the rethugs keep insisting on digging their own graves a little bit deeper each time they open their mouths.

  4. Condi is looking bad. Either she had an encounter w Poisoned Oak, walked into a door- her left eye looks bruised, or maybe she is allergic to the truth???
    In any case she should have it checked out!

    • she looks like she’s either experiencing a sinus attack gone haywire or like she’s on some kind of steroid that makes you all swollen. i think she needs a long vacation. maybe she should go to spain! i hear they have an interesting legal system over there.

    If there’s any justice in the world, she’ll always be dogged by these questions.

    As for this:

    “By definition, if it was authorised by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Convention Against Torture,” she said.

    TRANSLATION: If my husband, er, the President does it, then it’s not illegal.

  6. she will end up on the view sitting next to hasselshit and talk about tea and crumpets

    • dcAp,
      did you hear that hasselbitch has dismissed joe the plumber? she no longer wants him at any event she’s attending. the pot apparently doesn’t like the kettle anymore!
