You have to understand, as proven by phantom WMDs, the NeoConfused have a history of seeing what they want to see, real or imagined

But with high posts come high responsibility, and I'd really like to see someone step up and shoulder it.
She's been saying this all along, even before the invasion. It was the job of the world's intelligence agencies to know, and obviously they got it wrong, so did the UN, who had inspectors looking for those non-existent WMD two days before the invasion, so did the democrats and the Clinton administration, who called for regime change AND paraded a whole lot of dems from congress talking about saddam and his WMD.

BWHAHAHAHAH!

Couric asked a question with a false premise, which Rice called her on and then blew that left-wing talking point premise to all hell and then she proceeded to school her on the facts leading up to the invasion. What version were you watching?

Condoleezza Rice Schools Katie Couric on Why U.S. Invaded Iraq | NewsBusters.org

This woman would make a formidable presidential candidate.

Here is the full interview;

HBO History Makers Series with Condoleezza Rice (Video) - Council on Foreign Relations
Gee, do you think that Conda "sleezy" Rice might be a bit biased?

Bottom line, if you're Conservative, you'll go along with Rice. If you think the Bush administration was full of it (what i think), nothing that Rice says on that topic in particular will do. Absolutely NOTHING!!

That said, i admire Condi Rice from a personal standpoint. But i can't forgive anyone, including Colin Powell, for supporting that invasion.

She totally blew to smithereens the leftist "talking points" that couric was using.

She completely and totally shot to hell the premise that couric started with, stopped her cold and schooled her on the factual information.

She is one impressive individual - tough, articulate, smart as a whip and I think she also schooled obama too the last time she visited the WH.
As we all know there were not WMD. That administration was either lying or using primitive intelligence.

In addition, we were already at one war. WTH was the urgency to go to war with Iraq? There was no intelligence of an eminent attack anywhere.

Iraq invasion excuse---------FAIL!

I heard Condi say we invaded Iraq because, "he was firing at our aircraft daily and so on and so on." Condi is making stuff up and talking non answers. The interview is chalk full of weak excuses.

Rice is damaged goods and lost any credibility and ability to be a presidential candidate by being Cheney & Bush's stooge.
Exactly! She side stepped every question.

Then the WORLD was lying, the democrats were lying, Clinton was lying, the UN was lying, Kerry was lying, Hillary was lying, Biden was lying.

That is just an inescapable fact.

She answered every one and refused to allow the leftist couric to use her false premises. It was beautiful to behold.

Ok..then the world was lying. I'll go along with that. Besides, when did Repubs start caring about what the world thinks?

You act as if NOBODY was calling bull*^#t on those WMD claims. Plenty of people were.

Fabulous basis for making the most important executive decision a president can possibly face, isn't it?

Since you can't know, just assume that what you'd prefer to be the case must be true, because that's the way you want it to be.

Idiotic. Childish. Beyond unforgivable.
but, but, but, Bush wanted to make his daddy proud.
