Condoleeza Rice HBIC (head bitch in charge)

Read this then try and pick out the wonderful tidbits of information.

Let me help. First, Andrew Card:

Andrew Card said the Democrats' decision to have a day or more of debate on the nomination amounted to "petty politics."

"She certainly is qualified and ready to be the secretary of state," Card said. "We're anxious to have her there, and there's not a doubt in my mind that she will be confirmed, and she should be confirmed quickly."

OK so if you have a good resume but your name happens to be say Adolf Hitler, or Saddam Hussein, or Yasser Arrafat you too can be head of Department of State?

I heard this all throughout the Sunday talking heads shows. "She's more than qualified." Always reffering to her resume. SO WHAT?! The head of State is the person who the world looks at as the representative of the US. Condi's face just reminds the world of that dreaded "mushroom cloud" and "smoking gun" that was a threat to the United States.

All of which has been debunked, was being debunked at the time and remains debunked to this day, regardless of how many agencies they say they had intelligence from it was all 14 years old.
late in the article the AP reporter says:

...her contention that Iraq was trying to develop nuclear weapons has become debatable.


She was the hawkiest of the hawks and was responsible for channeling the flawed intelligence to the President. She was the last filter, the buffer, between the real Hawks and the President who took us to war.

She boggled the intelligence for 9/11. She admits there were spikes in information before 9/11. She did not do anything about that. This is who we entrusted our National Security to before 9/11 and since.

To the shcmuck (read: Barry Schweid) who wrote that AP article, the "contention that Iraq was trying to develop nuclear weapons" has long lost its debatability.

It is what you discussed in the meat of your article that has become debateable. Namely, wether or not Condoleeza Rice is "qualified" to ANY public role. Let alone the coveted Head of State.
