Condi Rice Pulls a Nixon
 
I had to post this...

Condi Rice get confronted when word gets around that she personally authorized torture... She b*tches up and starts making excuses..

some of her quotes

Quote:

"The president instructed us that nothing we would do would be outside of our obligations, legal obligations under the Convention Against Torture."

Quote:

"I didn't authorize anything. I conveyed the authorization of the administration to the agency, that they had policy authorization, subject to the Justice Department's clearance. That's what I did."

^:roll:

Quote:

"The United States was told, we were told, nothing that violates our obligations under the Convention Against Torture, and so by definition, if it was authorized by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Convention Against Torture."


"Well, when the president does it that means that it is not illegal." -Richard Millhouse Nixon

I would love to see her and Chaney be tried for war cimes but that only happens to Nazis from 60 years ago.

Eh, what's done is done. It is easy for Americans to start chirpin after the fact, but we had an opportunity to nip this in the bud earlier and did not.
