Condi -- who is a classically trained pianist -- tickled the ivories as Aretha belted out her hits at a children's charity event in Philadelphia last night.

A diva is born.

I have always respected Dr. Rice, not her politics but the woman.

I think she made an excellent Secretary of State even though I did not vote for her boss.

I hope she continues to stay involved with the political side of our country, hoping one day that she will fall a bit more center of right as I hope we all become a bit less polarized and a bit more centrally focused.

Condi Rice told the 9/11 Commission and the 9/11 Widows under oath that the "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in US" memo was not a warning. It warned of preparations for hijackings and planned attacks in the US.

On July 10, 2001, CIA director George Tenet warned Condi that al Qaeda attacks were coming in the next few weeks. Later he said acting on those warnings might have prevented 9/11. Cofer Black said "The only thing we didn't do was pull the trigger to the gun we were holding to her head."

The UK, Germany, Italy, and Egypt warned of aircraft as weapons; Russia of suicide pilots; Jordan and the Cayman Islands of attacks involving airlines. 13 foreign countries and 3 FBI offices warned. Israel warned of 19 terrorists plotting inside the USA, and named at least 4 of the alleged hijackers.

The German press reported that the August 6 PDB was actually 11-1/2 pages long, not the 1-1/2 pages we've seen.

Condoleezza Rice is a war criminal who should have been hanged just like Saddam Hussein. And she ordered torture inside the US. And Aretha Franklin has lost all her former talent to her literally morbid obesity. Not a pretty sight altogether.
