    The San Fransico treat.However what former Secretary-of-State { First
    African-American Female } and former National Security Advisor Condi Rice
    felt compelled to say as of yesterday { maybe over the weekend } was about
    what one should expect.About as smart as they come.Skipped 2 grades
    and went to college at age 16.Is a Professor of Political Science at Stanford
    and Senior Fellow on public policy at the Hoover Institution.
    Is an accomplished Pianist.Went to an All-girls Catholic High School.
    So her background and abilities are well noted.HOWEVER ... LAst I checked
    the State Dept. is not free of political hacks.Keep in mind that Richard Armitage
    was shielded { to this day } as The actual leaker of Valerie Plame's identity.
    So Beware of those cats at the State Dept.
    Then of course you got Cats like John Kerry and Hillary Clinton { about
    as driven to making sure they succeed at al costs and possibly President}.
    Colin Powell another crafty cat out for himself { used Bush and Cheney to
    further his career and then voted Not for McCain but for Obama ... Twice }.
    So Beware of certain cats { like ... - Alice in Wonderland - }. Washington D.C.
    is full of them.Unlike a bedtime story HOWEVER those at State and in D.C.
    mean business and play rough.Or dirty ... whichever comes easiest.
    So it comes as little surprise that smart as a whip Condoleezza Rice
    chimes-in as to this made-up Ukraine Scandal.Because it involves
    the dreaded Deep State { like the State Dept. } and also all those in
    the swamp who love to carry water for Deep Staters.
    Rice saying ...
    " What I see right now troubles me.I see a state of conflict between the
    foreign policy professionals and someone who says he's acting on behalf
    of the President,but frankly I don't know if that is the case."

    You mean like Barney Frankly.Like Obama's and John Kerry's Frankly
    Iran secret Deal which should have been voted on as a Treaty.
    Like the way Obama just up and frankly gave ransom to a Terrorist
    Regime { The biggest in the Middle East } or Iran for 2 American held
    prisoners.This Country had a firm Executive Decision to Not Give
    Ransom of any sort to Terrorist or terrorist Regimes.Dint seem to bug that
    vaunted State Dept. much.Nor the fact that State was shielding the Name
    of Richard Armitage { worked at State alongside Colin Powell }.
    So tell us Miss Rice-a-Roni the New California treat du jour how
    baffled you appear as to games being played in the Deep State.
    Your former Deep State.Which was in it's infancy.

    Sometimes, distance gives the person with the opinion insufficient context. I think that I would have preferred that Condi didn't make a comment here. I suspect that her opinion was crafted from the lens through which she believed that the dynamic in the Dept of State hadn't changed since she was actually involved. At least, I hope so. And then, perhaps this is her method for getting back into the national conversation for her own benefit vis a vis a future political office she might be running for. In which case, it seems pretty self serving.

    5 will getcha 10 Rice was almost forced into making a statement.
    When you have turncoats like Colin Powell { an anti-Trumper }
    and John Kerry,Hillary Clinton and who knows what other Deep State
    aficionado " Holdovers " from Obama still lurking at State,then it's almost
    a given.Like acting surprised when the Blackjack Dealer at one of Las Vegas'
    biggest Casinos wins again.Or the Cincinnati Bengals having another
    losing season.Or MSNBC hiring another Anti-Trump commentator.

    Trump's election to the White House has brought out the worst in many Washington insiders. So-called smart and informed people are showing how petty they can be.

    Because they became corrupted like no other time in history.
    Obama was the gel that cemented the way to make appear as if
    hunky dory.To say one thing and do another.Don't do as I say do as
    I do_Obama was The biggest bullcrapper in the history of Presidents.
    AND more importantly ... THE Most rewarded.With a $ 100 million
    Netflix deal along with a book advance around $ 60-70 Million.
    That for both Baracks book and Michelle's book.
    Under Obama { starting in 2009 } More Millionaires were created
    than ever in our storied history.That is what helped elevate the Deep State
    to new heights.It became a thing of craving.Craving to be a Millionaire
    as a Washington Lobbyist or political player.Or Bureaucrat.
    Everyone was wanting in on the Obama gig.Explains where Obama
    spent his nights.Fundraising or making promises as in Pay-to-Play.
    Like How Biden and Hunter got stinkin' rich in no time.Just play along
    and follow the Obama bouncing malfeasance.Ta hell with Truth and
    the American way.So it makes perfect sense that the Dirty Democrats
    and their water carriers in the MSM are mad as hornets who had their
    hive rattled.Trump has rattled Washington D.C. to it's core.
    His accomplishments have only made his detractors more ambitious
    to get rid of him,any way poss-ee-bow.

    If Colin Powell had never gotten involved with the Bush crowd, he could have been the first Black president. But backing Bush's weapons of mass destruct farce, so soiled his reputation, that all of his political ambitions were dashed

    Colin Powell came along when blacks were being pushed up a hill. He is the clear example of the Peter Principle. I saw it first hand in industry and it's still going on.

    Where do all politicians get their world knowledge from INTELLIGENCE BRIEFINGS????So guess how piss poor our intelligence gathering was for all of our politicians to believe that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction.

    To cite CNN is ludicrous. I won't even click a CNN link.

    Please DO provide links to these massive stockpiles of WMD's.

    Traces of possible mustard gas use don't cut it, with the MASSIVE bullshit story fed to us by Bush the Lesser.

    They knew he had destroyed all of his weapons of mass destruction in the aftermath of the first invasion into Iraq. I'm sure Bush and company invaded Iraq because they knew it would be easy. They knew that Iraq had no real defenses. After all the US had been bombing them almost daily for the decade leading up to the invasion.

    While we are on the subject, an interesting thing happened in the lead up to the invasion of Iraq. 2/3rds of the American people were led to believe that Iraqis were among the hijackers on September 11 when there were none. Many still believe.

    Also, to your last part, in 2002 the hijacker identities (nationalities) were released. None say "Iraq" as you claim.

    Doubtful you could educate much.

    Still waiting on those other links you were on about.

    I told you CNN is like a $5 hooker.

    Touch it and you will catch Something.

    I've given you one. I also asked (burden of proof lies on you since you claim the article is lying) for you to tell me which part of the article you claim is not true.

    You keep refusing to do so, which means you're just trolling.

    Carry on.

    The post is there. You said you had others when I said I don't **** with CNN.
    Traces of possible mustard gas don't prove there was a massive stockpile of WMD's
    Still waiting.

    *Yawn*

    CNN became a thing when the elder Bush invaded Iraq. They put cameras on the missiles. One could sit down in their easy chair and was the bombing 24 hours a day.

    They did an experiment of sorts, during the run up to the election of 1992. They had done a poll that showed Clinton ahead of Bush. Yet someone decided to report it as showing Bush gaining on his lead. The next time they took a poll, Bush had a big bump, but Clinton was still in the lead, however slightly.

    Your position of CNN or any news agency is irrelevant. Tell me which part of the CONTENT you disagree with.

    You keep refusing to do so. I think it's best you just not reply anymore. You're making this worse on yourself each time.
