Rice admits "thousands" of errors in Iraq

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.
Kinda like Castro, or Ahmadinejad, or Chavez.. Ooops, nope. The latter's election was more legitimate than that of Rice's boss. Hhhmmm.. So was the kooky Persian's, come to think of it.

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.



  1. …four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire…

  2. Thousands of errors and thousands dead.

  3. I can't believe she actually said "thousands." Can you? As disciplined as these people are about their message? Their talking points? I mean, they've yet to admit to one mistake, and now she says "thousands?" She's in big 'ol trouble with the Boss!! (I mean Rove)

    Shakespeare's Sister has a good post up about the Beatles embarrasment.

    Oh. Hi Michael!

  4. Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Dubya Ball...

    Thousands of reasons to overcome politics and vote to Censure. To Impeach.

    Rove is def'nitely the Dogma Boss!

    Now, off to Shake's Sis!

    Hi Blue Girl!
