War 'Thriller' from the Condi-riller

You know, we don't party with the same party, but I deeply respect Dr. Condoleeza Rice for her numerous accomplishments. It gets really hard sometimes, though. Like today, when I read this editorial apolology in USA Today -- after shouting WHAT?! outloud at this "headline"...

Rice won't rule out U.S. troops in Iraq in 10 years
Editor's note: The photo of Condoleezza Rice that originally accompanied this story was altered in a manner that did not meet USA TODAY's editorial standards. The photo has been replaced by a properly adjusted copy. Photos published online are routinely cropped for size and adjusted for brightness and sharpness to optimize their appearance. In this case, after sharpening the photo for clarity, the editor brightened a portion of Rice's face, giving her eyes an unnatural appearance.

Good grief, Which of these 'thrilling' verions of The Condi Gurl did we miss earlier - and was it done purposely?

Order Thriller by Michael Jackson today and have it to play at home this Halloween weekend.  Dress up like Condi and you'll win Best Costume, for sure!What on Earth did the earlier photo of Condi Rice look like.  I don't recall USA Today ever making such a YOOOGE deal about a photo, and certainly not swopping it out with lightning speed. I'm like wow! Who exactly 'showed up' for this photo then??

Rice aimed to reassure jittery lawmakers over the course of the war in Iraq... Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice declined on Wednesday to rule out American forces still being needed in Iraq a decade from now. Senators warned that the Bush administration must play it straight with the public or risk losing public support for the war. (She was being drilled by the Senate Foreign Relations committee.)

Pushed by senators from both parties to define the limits of U.S. involvement in Iraq and the Middle East, Rice also declined to rule out the use of military force in Iran or Syria, although she said the administration prefers diplomacy.

Silly me! I'm thinking the War for Oil party's just about over, given that at least one indictment is expected to be handed down any day now... and all these shakey policy cards that have been stacking since before 9/11 will finally fall. But they're still singing that same old song about a takeover. Can't deny the possibility of Iraq for 10 years? These folk don't seem sufficiently worried about a thing.

I admire Condi for what she has accomplished but I really am disgusted with how she seems to blindly follow Bush...not that she has much of an alternative. She chose her path and now has to stick with it.
I'm sickened and saddened by how Iraq has been handled so pretty much everything I read about it just pisses me off.
