BLACKBURN, England (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice accepted on Friday the United States had probably made thousands of errors in Iraq but defended the overall strategy of removing Saddam Hussein.
Local Muslims and anti-war activists told Rice to "Go Home" when British counterpart Jack Straw earlier led her on a tour of his home town of Blackburn in the industrial northwest, an area which rarely plays host to overseas politicians.
"Yes, I know we have made tactical errors, thousands of them," she said in answer to a question over whether lessons had been learned since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
"I believe strongly that it was the right strategic decision, that Saddam had been a threat to the international community long enough," she added.
Too bad neither Google nor I can read farsi.
And I can't see or hear the name, Jack Straw, without thinkin' of the D Street letters and the Grateful Dead.
Gettin' back to that "threat" issue, though. I think she may need to check with the EFF on what constitutes a threat. Her boss goes to the head of the list, if the threat's against the Balance of Powers in this country.
