Do I smell pants on fire?

Holy crap! Rice's speech this morning contained some doozies:

Rice asserted that the United States does not transport terrorism suspects "for the purpose of interrogation using torture" and "will not transport anyone to a country when we believe he will be tortured..."

"The U.S. does not permit, tolerate or condone torture under any circumstances," she said.

She said international law allows a country to detain a suspect for the "duration of hostilities," but that the United States "does not hold anyone longer than necessary to evaluate evidence against them."

Any violation of detention standards is investigated and punished, she said, citing the case of abuse at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison that "sickened us all" and the abuse of a detainee by an intelligence agency contractor in Afghanistan.


And then, a veiled threat to European leaders who have been encouraging the investigation into rumored secret CIA prisons located somewhere in Europe. (Rumors Bushco refused to confirm or deny, BTW):

At the end of her statement, Rice noted that she had been through inquiries about what was done and could have been done to prevent the 9/11 attacks, suggesting that European leaders would not want to face a similar probe.

"I know what it is like to face an inquiry into whether everything was done that
could be done."


Yeah, and you know what it's like stink up the joint with your lame prevarications and your endless ass-kissing, don't cha girl?

Seriously, Condi, you suck. Now take your confirmed-bachlorette ass and get the fuck over to Europe and lie lie lie like a good little toady. While you're at it, why don't you change your hair style or get a new outfit, take some attention away from what you're doing over there? It worked last time.

Isn't that like, the HUNDREDTH comment on her wardrobe as a result of European travels? Didn't the French give her a two thumbs up on her first visit there for her choice of suits? Doesn't anyone have anything to say about her WORDS???

Or, is it just that boots and suit stylings contain far more substance than the silken bullshit streaming from her lips??

Just wondering.
