    This kind of thing happens often... don't see why Mrs. Rice gets special treatment.

    Unless the material was sensitive and could affect an ongoing investigation or the lives of citizens, Government should not interfere with the press. I am shocked to see nonchalance about this story and fear that freedom is not an important issue for some. Amazing what partisanship does to commons sense and logic.

    I have a special distaste for Condoleezza Rice. Her speeches are remarkable for its defensive, dense and evasive tone, replete with half-truths, outright falsehoods, distortions and subterfuges. It doesn't surprise me she sought to kill the CIA story. I'm glad she is no longer in power.

    It doesn't happen to African Americans often, but Ms. Rice certainly has had her share of good fortune. She was a lousy National Security Advisor and I'm still waiting to see the results of her role as Secretary of State. Ms. Rice was Provost at Stanford before joining the GWB admin. She had been instrumental in teaching George Herbert Walker Bush about Russia since she had a Ph.D. in Russian Literature and spoke fluent Russian. The father recommended Condi to the son when he became president. GWB, lacking in coherent rhetoric, sorely needed coaching from someone like Rice and W became very dependent on her. This is why she was able to get all these choice positions in the GWB admin. Condi's role could have been given to a Chinese person, or any other ethnic but because of the senior Bush needing Condi to learn about Russia, she became a valuable asset to the Bush family.

    Rice was acting as National Security Adviser. If she worked to kill the story in order to protect sensitive sources and methods of classified information, I don't think she can be blamed for what she did. From the general description of the article, it seems that the story might have exposed the CIA's limitations. In turn, that could have allowed Iran to exploit that vulnerability.

    That is probably the case, Don, but I do find it telling that some in the same Administration had no issue exposing a spy who was on an important fact-finding mission on the very same topic.

    I wish she would. LOL! It would just add more fun to the circus.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    Wouldn't NFL football fall under domestic ?

    Rice was President Bush's (43) White House National Security Adviser during the first four years of the Bush administration. Doesn't that fall under executive ?

    Then you have to look at the consequences if Rice were POTUS, it would give Vladimir Putin a migraine.
