Condoleezza Rice on 60 Minutes Live Thread [7pm EST, Sunday 3/28]
CBS News ^ | 3-28-04 | CBS News

Posted on 03/28/2004 2:57:31 PM PST by GraniteStateConservative

I was waiting for this to go up. We're about t-minus one hour from it (depending on how long Duke-Xavier goes, I guess). Too bad it's not going to be a long interview like Clarke had. I've noticed that 60 Minutes are not promoting this either. The commercial I just saw advertised the story on soccer phenom Freddy Adu, not the story on Rice or Pickering. I also discovered from the link referenced above that Rice spoke to them this morning and not yesterday as I'd heard would be the case before. Bill Kristol predicted this morning that Rice might say that if this is really such a big deal that she'll testify in public under oath as she's been badgered to do. I don't think Bill has a good track record on predicting news, so take that with a grain of salt. By the way, go Xavier-- I had Duke losing before now in my office pool bracket, but my opponents have them winning it all.

She better not testify in public. That would drive me postal....All it would be is the DEm's grandstanding and putting her down; she'd have to stit there and smile. Total joke. If she was a dem and the Rep's treated her this way it would be non stop front page news about the racist repub's.

Does it really matter what she says? The media has already made up their mind. Lemme guess. They will treat her with utmost respect and then all the other networks will pick her apart as a liar....same ol s$%T, different program.

Now thats a shocker.

Since Condi is going to grace us with her presence on 60 minutes I guess I'll break the straw and watch network media.

I agree, no public testimony for administration officials. Let Mansoor Ijaz do it for them.

No surprise 60 Minutes isn't plugging Rice - it doesn't fit their political perspective.

I was hoping Illinois would beat Duke. Am pulling for Xavier.

The media has already made up their mind.

Their mind making has been rendered inefficient anymore, with Condi on 60 minutes only what she has to say will be the focus to the viewers.

Posting this on all 9-11 threads. Looking for an answer.

Whatever happened to the report that Phillipine intell found a plot in a Manila. The deal was to fly airplanes into buildings in the US. They turned it over to the US in 96 or 97, I think.

Is the commission hearing this. Did we take any action after that. How did these guys get into flight schools so easilly afterwards?

Since it's not live, I'm concerned about the editing the media (especially CBS) is famous for.

Give me a break! She absolutely should testify before the commitee. One, there's nothing lost if she does. And secondly, that would prevent the media and the dems from using her lack of open testimony as proof that there must be some substance in Clarke's lies!

She should tell the people that she will gladly testify in public, under oath, as soon as the congress gives up congressional immunity. As soon as they do, in writing, she will testify.

Ok, let me put it this way. The lib media and thier followers have already had a week of Clark's "Truth" and him being attacked by the Republicans. 60 Minutes isn't going to change anything in their minds by interviewing Condi Rice.

In fact, I don't even care what she has to say. I'm sick of it all. It doesn't matter who screwed up in the past, just FIX it and don't let it happen again!

Bingo! As an advisor to the President, Condi should insist on this!

There have been no leaks, because they got NOTHING. If they had something good against Rice, it would have been all over the place last night and today. The people at 60 minutes don't want you to see this interview, they would rather you not even know about it.

Project Bojinka

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Jury selection began in New York Monday in the federal trial of three men accused of plotting to bomb 11 planes headed for the United States on a single day in 1995.
Ramzi Yousef is charged with masterminding the plot. He also will be tried later this year, accused of planning the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993. Four men are already serving life in prison for that crime.
The alleged plot was discovered in the Philippines in January 1995, when a fire broke out in a Manila apartment 200 yards from the Vatican's embassy, a week before the arrival of Pope John Paul II.
Police were shocked by what they found inside: a smoking mixture of explosives in a sink, street maps and garments like those worn by the Pope's entourage, suggesting a plot to kill the Pontiff.

Note: Laurie Mylroie and James Woolsey have said that Yousef was an intelligence officer for Iraq.

So did Clarke get the full hour?

What's Condi getting? 1/3 with 2 other stories?

60 minutes is hard to tape ... because they do so much sports and then it runs over. Guess I'll just start the tape at six and let it go.

I'd watch it live but The Dog gets ugly if he doesn't get taken to the dog park.

While I agree that she shouldn't testify publicly and the dems would grandstand, she certainly would not have to sit there and take it. In fact, she could gain a lot of mileage out of throwing it back at the dems and telling them to STFU. I'd love to see it. Still, I see no point in participating in Ben-Veniste's charade. Plus she has already testified privately. That's more than they deserve.

"Give me a break! She absolutely should testify before the commitee. One, there's nothing lost if she does. And secondly, that would prevent the media and the dems from using her lack of open testimony as proof that there must be some substance in Clarke's lies!"

What’s “lost” if she testifies is this committee fading from memory rather than a second round of high profile officials looking like defendants and democrats launching into anti-Bush diatribes in questioning. Another thing lost is Democrats ability to keep the administration on the defensive for another week carried live on all networks.

You really think that her testifying would keep Democrats from claiming it as proof that Clark has substance? I think they’d just call for the CIA Chief, Sec Def, VP and on until someone finally refused, and then they’d call that “proof”.

NOT a flattering photo, not a flattering portrayal of the situation--why is even Foxnews out to destroy Condie?

There is very little separation of powers today and no balance. The presidency is imperial. If Kerry or Rochefeller (both senators saying the war was wrong) had pulled rank and demanded the right to once again "Declare War" as is their "duty" under the Constitution, we wouldn't be in this mess in Iraq. If it were done earlier, our troops might have been home rather than killed in Lebonan or the people in the WTC might not have died.

Also, the death of the troops in Lebonan is often called "terrorism", but aren't foreign troops "fair game"? How is that terrorism?

Condi is a very pretty woman, but sometimes she takes a bad picture (unlike Dubya and Laura).

She often has a stern, serious expression. (but after all, she has a serious job)

Personally, I think she should just arm wrestle Clarke. She'd probably put him down big time.

Or maybe she could do the Buffy thing and pretend he's a vampire.

Or maybe he IS a vampire.

It ticks me off that the media can't seem to show one picture of Condi other than in her super-serious pose, which is not at all flattering. CNN is currently running a most annoying one on their site.

I agree. I'm confident that Rice would make a good showing for herself and put Rat partisans in their rightful place. However, there is the issue of precedence.

just FIX it and don't let it happen again!

You appear to be a proponent of a "dictatorship" in the USA, for without the muss and fuss of discussion we could very easily alleviate your concerns of these life frustrations by having the likes of "Saddam" as our omnipotent sayer to free us all of such concerns!

To me, the frustration is much more acceptable as a way of life!
