“Got kitesurfing on the mind, mixed with some search & classification tech, and a dab of political ranting”

She went second, how could she be the one to look like fried Rice

You’d think that if you were going refute what former President Bill Clinton said, during what was an obvious provocation by Chris Wallace on his “Faux News” show (quick side note, did Chris not come across like the most snotty little kid that you ever saw?…made me wish Clinton just leaned over and smacked that smirk off his face), you’d make sure the facts were with you. Worse, Secretary of State Condi Rice had the gall to make the following condenscending comment:

But Rice also said the debate “is not a very fruitful discussion. We’ve been through it. The 9/11 commission has turned over every rock and we know exactly what they said.”
Well, it looks like Condi blew it as related here in Raw Story’s investigative piece into her comments. Here’s a short excerpt from the piece…

“We were not left a comprehensive strategy to fight al Qaeda,” Rice told a reporter for the New York Post on Monday. “Big pieces were missing,” Rice added, “like an approach to Pakistan that might work, because without Pakistan you weren’t going to get Afghanistan.”

Rice made the comments in response to claims made Sunday by former President Bill Clinton, who argued that his administration had done more than the current one to address the al Qaeda problem before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. She stopped short of calling the former president a liar.

However, RAW STORY has found that just five days after President George W. Bush was sworn into office, a memo from counter-terrorism expert Richard A. Clarke to Rice included the 2000 document, “Strategy for Eliminating the Threat from the Jihadist Networks of al-Qida: Status and Prospects.” This document devotes over 2 of its 13 pages of material to specifically addressing strategies for securing Pakistan’s cooperation in airstrikes against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Can you say…DOH! Next thing she’ll say is that Billy-boy didn’t leave office with a budget surplus. How many more times does this Administration need to get busted for abusing the people’s trust before they’re appropriately punished by the law….but don’t get caught smokin’ a fatty out there lest you’ll join some hardened criminals in jail…”sure it’s helping your cancer you 58 year old hippie woman on chemotherapy”.

So how is it that this country is more secure with these insane politicians at the helm? I hope to live to see the answer to this question, but unfortunately I’m more likely to see the opposite.
