A video of Condi Rice (embedded in several links) answering a Stanford student’s question on torture was making the rounds last week. Most of the commentary characterizes Rice’s responses and demeanor as increasingly hostile and at one point she “pulls a Nixon.”
The next day, Scott Horton (someone I admire) took apart each of Rice’s points. Horton ends his post with this:
So I score this: Stanford student 6, Rice 0. Rice needs to do some homework before her next appearance on campus. But first perhaps she’d better hire a good lawyer.
Then this morning, a whole different group of posts shows up. Here are a few quotes:
If everyou needed further proof of the “person of color” America really needs in charge right now, I urge you to watch this fabulous YouTube footage of the magnificent Condoleezza Rice being ambushed by left-liberal students at Stanford University with a series of “difficult” questions about torture, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and US foreign policy under George W Bush. (Hat tip: Andrew Hamilton.)
It’s too bad we no longer have adults leading this country.
Watch ouralways classy, former SOS take on Stanford University progressive liberal know-it-all students, and put their sound byte educated selves in their place during an impromptu “interrogation” about torture, Gitmo, etal. This woman doesn’t parse words, straddle fences, and she sure doesn’t back down…. and still remains the lady thru and thru.
My personal favorite? The part about why the Club Gitmo tribunals were delayed.
Condi Rice disembowels a sniveling liberal puppy from Stanford University
I sure miss having grownups in positions of authority.
The phony “torture” rhetoric moonbats have been pushing is going to blow up in their self-righteous faces when their policies inevitably lead to an attack that will make 9/11 look like a fender-bender. They will be complicit in the bloodshed, and everyone will know it.
The factis we saw what they would have done, and it would have ulimately led to more attacks on US soil.
For me at least, it the difference between reason (Scott Horton) and cheer leading (the other links).
