Condi Rice Channels Richard Nixon

Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks obtained a copy of a tape of a student asking Condoleezza Rice whether torture was illegal. Her answer was straight out of "Frost/Nixon". Check it out.

Now that we know Condi had a central role in approving of torture I really hope she gets shunned by the academic community and at some point has to face public questioning over the issue.

  1. Just because Rice wasn't as high a profile evildoer like a Bush or like a Cheney, she still needs to be publically held accountable. Nothing judicial is going to happen to the torturers at least domestically.

    Tons of bad stuff happened on her watch. Otherwise, she will seamlessly blend back into academia at Stanford or elsewhere, become a highly paid consultant on Soviet affairs, join the speaking tour, be back on mega-corporation boards of directors (see Chveron tanker vessel named after her even before the administration) and enjoy all the comforts of life similar to what Yoo enjoys as a law professor at Cal Berkeley.

    Stanford and Berkeley. Not the Left Coast that I remember.
