1. “Condoleezza Rice’s Misguided ‘Values’


But it is not Ms. Rice’s words that are at issue here. It is her sense of values. Condoleezza Rice might have improbably risen out of segregated Birmingham, but for what? What sort of values did she display? What great things did she accomplish?


Well, she assisted in the killing of between 600,000 and one million Iraqis and nearly 4,500 American soldiers in Iraq and did so on the basis of false claims. This is the sort of record that ought to put one before the International Criminal Court and not in the halls of a great university.


Compared to others of our age who have risen from obscurity, people such as Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Caesar Chavez, etc., Rice’s sense of values is just appalling. The fact that she rose to the “highest reaches of government” suggests a Faustian bargain that led to eight full years of the corruption of values.”

Americans have learned the hard way that when rich organizations and wealthy individuals shower Washington with millions in campaign contributions, they get what they want.”
