Posted on 12/12/2010 4:27:11 PM PST by Def Conservative
On December 3, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice gave CBS's Katie Couric a much-needed lesson on why America invaded Iraq.
When Couric said to her guest during an "HBO History Makers Series" interview, "Documentaries have been made about how intelligence was incorrectly analyzed and cherry-picked to build an argument for war, and memos from that time do suggest that officials knew there was a small chance of actually finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq," Rice stopped the host dead in her tracks (video follows with transcript and commentary):

What did Rice do after she left office? She led one life before. I know nothing of the after.
One day I may understand why anyone takes Couric seriously. Is it because she thinks she can talk down to conservatives? I really don’t get it. She is, at best, a bit above normal intelligence, but has yet to show any real brilliance or grasp of issues not eet forth in a liberal’s template.
She went back to Stanford. My daughter was in the first class Dr. Rice taught last Spring. Those students were put on notice, tho, that from time to time class might be canceled because Dr. Rice is still visited by world leaders, and called upon for her expertise.
what was the class?
Call me skeptical.
I like the Dan Akroyd Saturday Night Live approach much better: “Katie, you dumb lapdog of the left useful idiot slut...”
I know, however, that Ms. Rice has far more class than that. )
nobody, but nobody, takes Katie Coo seriously
>>nobody, but nobody, takes Katie Coo seriously<<
That is my position as well. I’ve actually met quite a few “famous” people and many of them may have a following, but they are not too bright. It is sometimes as if fame and intelligence are mutually exclusive. Obviously there are exceptions, cough, Palin, cough, but it is a generally accurate rule.
Another exception would be Gene Simmons. I disagree with him on a few points, but he is one smart cookie.
If the words Katie wants to use are not written down for her she is screwed.
She is a news reader, plain and simple.
She would like to be a power on the side of the left, but she just isn’t bright enough for the job.
How much Money is CBS going to lose on this person?
She continues to say there was no WMD. In another sentence she says there was no “stock piles” of WMD.
Those wikileaks docs become more interesting by the day.
This whole Iraq affair reminds me of the dropping of the 2nd A-bomb that all but wiped out Christianity in Japan.
What good did we do in Iraq? Anyone still doubts that we’ll have another Sadam Hussein in about 10 years from now? Or are there still those who think that we have established ‘democracy’ in Iraq? It’s so incredibly sad that so many good and brave Americans and soldiers of other nationalities had to die and be maimed.
We’re dealing with muslims, for crying out loud.
I have a call out to my daughter to ask what the course was, but obviously it was something in the world of Political Science. Will let you know when I hear back.
Not enough, apparently.
The over-rated/dim-witted Couric could not understand the language and comprehend the logic of that principle.
She could use a translator...or a dog-trainer.
But, but, but, the bombs that the FBI have been providing to wannabee jihadists lately are called WMD in American “news” media.
Interesting how definitions change, depending on the party in power.
Condi is just wondrous.
And watching Katie visible discomfort was so earned by her-I mean-Condi ate her for lunch in the most diplomatic and well spoken manner conceivable. Katie seems pretty dumb for someone who has made current events her life. I guess she hasn't learned much. Or can't learn much. Or maybe, doesn't want to learn anything that differs from idiotic liberalism.
I remember when she actually spit Bob Dole's name out when he was running for President. She snarled. If nothing else, Bob Dole risked his life for another in war and if that bitch couldn't respect that alone-screw her. I mean...can you even IMAGINE, in your wildest dreams...ANY PAST DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT risking his own skin for ANYTHING? (ala teddy)
AH well, I digress. Condi skinned Katie. Most satisfying. But more importantly, most deserved. Just beautiful.
ROFL! Your agenda pokes out like a snake that ate a golf club.
Go back to school, shill.
Now, now, Katie,
Rice is a very disappointing globalist RINO.
But she is a razor-sharp disappointing globalist RINO, and to see Craphead Couric try to go up against her was hysterical.
Like watching a fly buzzing around the front of a laser when it turns on.
You know what, THANK YOU! I will ask for that for Christmas!!! I would love to read it...she is in my top five ‘mostest’ favorite people!
At least as much as they spent on that other CB.S. paragon of credibility -- Dan Rather.
In the early 80’s Couric worked at WRC- TV, channel 4 in Washington, DC. She was the “puff piece” reporter doing feel good stories. I don’t think she ever covered hard news or politics. She was a joke then and she remains one.
Couric is a tool of the communist worldwide network and takes her orders from putin
Dr. Rice could also give our FLOTUS lessons on how to dress and behave with class.
As I said I would do, I am getting back to you about the course Dr. Rice teaches at Stanford. The title is: Challenges and Dilemmas in Foreign Policy from WWII to the present.
It is, apparently, the only class she actually teaches and is very intense. It’s a Foreign Relations/Political Science course open only to juniors/seniors and grad students. And they have to apply to get into it. Some 200-300 applied last year and @ 26 were in the class, roughly divided between undergrad and grad students.
Hope that answers your question, if you want more info (that I might possibly be able to answer) FReepmail me.
thank you for getting back to me... i appreciate that... the course sounds fascinating! i hope my boys will someday be able to have such an experience... how wonderful for your daughter...
