Condi Rice, Stanford University April 27, 2009 (hat tip Laura and Tom)
This "torture" nonsense is the new meme, the left's face saving attempt to confuse and divert American attention from the real issues facing the country and this car wreck of a president.
This is a fascinating little video. Condi Rice is fielding questions from a Stanford student at a Frosh dorm. Apparently there's an anti-Condi movement on campus, and some want her to be criminally prosecuted for Gitmo, waterboarding etc.
Laura queried, "I wonder how these elitists
would feel if a close relative had been one of the many who lost their lives in
Twin Towers. Maybe a different perspective would be in order". Probably right. I think they'd say, "Kill Aunt Millie, just as long as the rapists and beheaders are not deprived of their civil rights."
I am not a big fan of Condi's, as evidenced by the tiny bit in the video where Rice mentions the Palestinian state, but she was light years ahead of muhammadan in the White House.
Interesting take on "dealing with the devil" -- as in Saudi Arabia regarding war
The pisher student she is talking to is a maroon. But to her credit, Condi answered this tool's questions with gravity and respect. The boy needs some serious schooling.
What I find most surprising about this video is the straight talk, the intelligent talk -- that, on hearing, is a head slapping moment -- as in, 'gosh, I remember that!'.
O is in residence for 100 days. And already I have become somewhat inured to the round-about, mixed up, disingenuous, double-speak Obama and his minions (Gibb!) spout daily. Every single day -- a constant barrage of verbal diarrhea, and nothing is said apart from nonsensical apologies for things they alleged not to have done. It's like living near a car alarm testing facility, after awhile, you sorta get used to it.
Listening to Condi again was like a delicious cold splash on the face. When Bush and/or his minions spoke, they actually said something. They knew their stuff. They got shiz done. This admin is more Animal House (halal) than anything else.
