Unlike jonblaze3 who obviously wants to blame everyone for 9-11 except the ones who did the killing, I think Condi's testimony was truthful and insightful. I honestly don't know how any informed person could want so much to blame this president for something even Richard Clarke said could not have been prevented. Monday-morning quarterbacking is a popular sport in many offices and has now become popular political sport for those who can't stand it when there is no one to blame except those who committed the crime.
Rather than being the information gathering forum intended, the Democrats once more tried manipulating facts, this time facing a knowledgable and calm individual who made them all out to be the fools they are. Grandstanding and playing to the crowd did nothing for the Democrat panel members. Their obvious goal to manipulate to their own political gains was apparent to all.
What this testimony revealed to the whole world was that the Bush Administration has yet again refused to take any responsibility for whatever happens to the country. First they try and blame the Clinton administration saying Clinton had 8 years then they try and shift the blame to their former friend Clarke, talk about swatting the wrong flies! Well, thats all great and everything but at the end of the day who's running the country? The former president or the current president? If they really want to play the "shifting blame and responsibility" game then not only should they have not run for the presidency but Clinton can play the same games and go back and start blaming Reagan for training our former friend Bin Laden to help kill the Soviets, not realizing that Bin Laden would one day use the skills he learned to turn his back on us. Reagan can then himself start to shift blame on former presidents and their poor foreign policies. Its the "corporation" syndrome, creating a non existant entity to take the blame. The bottom line is that the BUCK STOPS AT BUSH. He's the president, he has to take the responsibility and stop being obsessed with Iraq. On top of all of this, Rice was too stubborn to even apologize to the 9/11 famillies for the sake of politics which I find nothing short of disgraceful. All it took was 2 seconds of her time but as we all know this administration won't even give its people that.
Listening to this hearing is no different than any other government
hearing. Packed with rhetoric, weak ineffectial past action, and finger pointing. Condoleezza Rice is not an excellent public speaker nor a great American figure, but carries out the APPOINTED position she holds as well as any other D.C. Politico. Listening to any radio station or watching cartoons for 3 hours would be time better spent.
Aubible is to be commended on providing a true representation of government tax dollars at work. Definitely worth the price.
