I Love Condoleezza Rice!!! Wish she had remained in politics.

Maddypie

I like Connie but I am glad she is no longer in politics. She didn't end up being who I thought she was. And I am fine with that. I put that on me. But someone like her can only fool me once.
I wish her well in private life.

She was the national security advisor during 9/11... and then there's here support of the invasion of Iraq. Which definitely ranks up there with all time bad national security decisions.

Not everyone has the luxury to be able to fail upwards.

I mean come on. You read the intelligence, and the conclusions you drew from the intelligence... WERE WRONG. Accept it.

I can barely make it through the beginning. The first words out of Condi's mouth are BS. There were inspections going on from November 2002 until March 2003 (they left due to imminent invasion). The bush admin refused to listen to Blix's inspection team though. The people actually on the ground with actual new intelligence were ignored.

Just one day I'd love for these academic eggheads (which condi is) is to live in a world where you put your career on the line for every decision you make. The excuse making stops real quick.

Maddypie

LOL gnat, Like you would have a clue at to anything you just said. You are an infant gant hoping not to be broke by the time you are 32.
Keep staying away for weeks only to come back and comment on a softball post instead of the meatier ones.
I take it you are thrilled to have billy boy clinton back in the white house.
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Every week gnat, every week your messiah the commie jackass hussein is living up to my expectations. What a commie buffoon!

derek

Your lame attempts at prose aren't nearly as ridiculous as usual. Having an off day?

Maddypie

No but you are.
Hey gnat James T. is on the air. Why don't you call in so we can hear your girly voice again.
Come on you know you want to do it!

"Not everyone has the luxury to be able to fail upwards."

You mean like Obama, derek?

Guy can't even have a press conference scheduled that doesn't cut in to his Christmas party time... then says gotta go "Michelle is waiting" and leaves Clinton in charge.

No wonder he couldn't hold a job other than community organizer. Exactly what did he "organize"?

Like the WMDs which the documents posted to Wikileaks shows to exist?

http://www.examiner.com/public-safety-in-national/wikileaks-wmd-program-existed-iraq-prior-to-us-invasion

"The release by Julian Assange's web site Wikileaks of classified documents reveals that U.S. military intelligence discovered chemical weapons labs, encountered insurgents who were specialists in the creation of toxins, and uncovered weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. However, Washington, DC officials and the news media have ignored this information.

One of the WikiLeaks document dumps reveals that as late as 2008, American troops continued to find WMD in the region."

derek

What was shown to exist? Was there a nuclear program, was there a reconsituted chemical or bio weapons program? Anything that Condi remotely mentioned in this interview?

After that entire buildup to the war are you really able to fool yourself into believing we went to war to find some 25 year old chemical shells that Saddam wouldn't have even been able to find for himself?

From the link:

"WikiLeaks documents don't reveal evidence of a massive weapons program by Saddam Hussein — the Bush administration’s leading rationale for invading Iraq -- or some enormous stockpile of WMD, but do reveal that chemical weapons did vanish from the Iraqi battlefield."
_______


The intelligence was wrong, period. Nothing Colin Powell said in his presentation to the UN ended up being true, period. Massive failure on the part of the intelligence community and the people using the intelligence.

And that's not even getting into the fact that chemical weapons were able to fall into al-qaida/insurgent hands due to the botching of the war itself. If Saddam actually did have chemical weapons that worked and weren't a few decades old, it would have been an even bigger screwup with way worse consequences. And that's even scarier. If the intelligence was right, Bush could have inadvertently caused his own worst case scenario.

Does the magnitude of these mistakes even register with you bush lovers? Is self reflection even possible for you people?

Joyce

"The intelligence was wrong, period."

Ooooo... derek... didn't know you had that kind of clearance and that you actually had read the intelligence reports.

Funny. Senators that did have the clearance and read the reports differed from your assessment.
John Kerry: "When I vote to give the president of the United States the authority to use force, if necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein, it is because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a threat, a grave threat."

But of course a high school kid like you knew all the answers, then and now.

Frank

Joyce, you made me smile with that one.

TerryN

Don't forget Al Gore screaming at the top of his lungs about George H. W. Bush being negligent for not taking out Saddam during Desert Storm. See youtube for a refresher.

There is only one woman with any intelligence in this video, and she's not standing up for Saddam Hussein.

Sail'nTodd

You gotta admit,

Condi has some class.
