    Rice says only an idiot would trust North Korea Fri Dec 19, 2008 6:18pm EST WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in an interview released on Friday only an "idiot" would trust North Korea, which is why the United States is insisting on a way to check its nuclear claims. A 2005 multilateral deal under which Pyongyang would abandon its nuclear programs has become snagged on Pyongyang's refusal to spell out a protocol on how to verify its disclosures about its nuclear programs. The sticking point appears to be North Korea's reluctance to allow inspectors to take...

    Condi was just on CNN with Wolf Blitzer. At the end of her response to his question of what she thought about Obama's election, she said "The American people are wise to want change. Two terms is enough." Wow, no one digs a horn into an embattled president's back like a rampaging RINO. How nasty and disloyal of her.

    Pakistan must act quickly to help India prevent follow-on attacks amid evidence that Pakistani soil was used by "non-state actors," US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said here Sunday. Speaking on US television, Rice said she stressed during her visit to Pakistan last week how important it was for Islamabad to cooperate fully and promptly with India, but denied reports of a 48-hour deadline for action. "The important thing is that Pakistan act and that these people are brought to justice and that any information that they may have is put to use in making sure follow-on attacks don't happen,"...

    Zimbabwe's government has accused former colonial ruler Britain of using a cholera epidemic to rally Western support for an invasion of the collapsing southern African nation, a state-run newspaper said on Sunday. President Robert Mugabe is under mounting pressure from the international community, especially Western nations which accuse him of ruining the once prosperous country and exposing its people to famine and disease. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has branded Mugabe's government a "blood-stained regime" and said it was responsible for the cholera epidemic that has killed at least 575 people. The world must tell Mugabe "enough is enough," he...

ISLAMABAD: United States Senator John McCain has said there is enough evidence of the involvement of former Inter-Services Intelligence officers in the planning and execution of the Mumbai attacks.

    The Bush administration conceded Thursday that an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal by a year-end deadline is no longer possible. "We do not think it is likely it will happen before the end of the year," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said in Washington, while Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice acknowledged as much at the outset of a Mideast trip meant to secure the modest gains from a year of U.S.-sponsored talks between Israel and one part of the fractured Palestinian leadership. Perino said U.S. advisers began to doubt the deadline months ago, as a corruption scandal and related political uncertainties occupied...

    AQABA, Jordan (AFP) – US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Friday Palestinians should soon have their own state, though she has made it clear she does not expect a breakthrough before Barack Obama moves into the White House. "They are dignified people and I am certain the day is coming soon when they have a state that will be in accordance with that great national dignity," she said after meeting Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas in Ramallah, the West Bank's political capital, before heading later to Jordan. Rice has nevertheless tacitly admitted that Israel and the Palestinians were unlikely...

    US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Sunday reiterated her belief internal political turmoil in Israel thwarted the Bush Administration in its quest to oversee a final status Israeli-Palestinian peace deal by the end of 2008. "Even though there was not an agreement by the end of the year, it is really largely because of the political situation in Israel," Rice told reporters in Washington just hours before hosting visiting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert for a breakfast meeting. She assigned no blame to the Palestinians' ongoing failures to eliminate the threat of anti-Israel terrorism and build the foundations of...

The clear message was conveyed to Pakistan's top leadership by Rice during her brief stopover in Islamabad [Images] on Thursday, diplomatic sources said, giving credence to the report.

His disclosure came as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice held meetings with Indian leaders in New Delhi and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,...

    Even though Barack Obama received less than 53 percent of the popular vote, his favorable rating stands at 67 percent. It appears that many conservatives who didn’t support him are nevertheless enthusiastic about his presidency and optimistic about his tenure. How could it be otherwise? Americans were hungry for change, as was the rest of the planet. Obama’s victory has generated excitement around the world — among Muslims, Christians and Buddhists, Scandinavians and South Africans, democrats and autocrats — and helped to restore the moral authority of the U.S. As The Economist put it recently, “All of Europe is on...

    Although the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations have yielded no agreements on core issues, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has decided that a departmental panel will “summarize” their transcripts and hand them over to the Barack Obama team. Rice said at the Middle East Quartet meeting in Egypt Sunday, Nov. 9, that she would hand over to her successor “in private” and then "you won't hear any more from me". DEBKAfile notes: All the parties agreed in advance that the Israel-Palestinian talks would be confidential. They were held for several months on two tracks - Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian...
