Iraq War Watch: United States State Department’s Alberto Fernandez Receives Award for “Integrity, Courage, [and] Sensitivity”

Alberto Fernandez

Remember this MORON?

Remember that Flap said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice needs to bring Fernandez in for a WOODSHED TALK.

So, what does the United States State Depatment do?

Fox News: Public Praise

Remember Alberto Fernandez? The State Department press officer was forced to apologize last month after telling Al Jazeera that the U.S. had shown “arrogance” and “stupidity” in Iraq.

Well after a month of silence, the State Department is finally speaking out on Fernandez — not to condemn him, but to praise his “integrity, courage, [and] sensitivity.”

Fernandez was selected from three department nominees for the Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Public Diplomacy by Tufts University… for his work with pan-Arab media … to increase the number of appearances by U.S. officials.

He receives a certificate signed by Secretary Condoleezza Rice — and $10,000 in cash.

Does anyone wonder why the GOP lost control of Congress and the President’s polling numbers are in the basement?

Michelle Malkin has more.

This is, after all, the same U.S. State Department that gave performance awards to bureaucrats responsible for the lax visa policies that paved the way for the 9/11 terrorists.

North Korea Nuclear Watch: Condoleezza Rice Promises United States Defense of Japan

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, left, shakes hands with Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasuhisa Shiozaki prior to their talks at the prime minister’s official residence in Tokyo Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006. Rice urged the swift and effective implementation of sanctions against North Korea on Wednesday, arguing that the United States had no desire to escalate the crisis over Pyongyang’s nuclear test.

AP: Rice promises U.S. defense of Japan

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday the United States is ready to use the “full range” of its military might to defend Japan in light of North Korea’s nuclear weapons test, and her Japanese counterpart drew a firm line against developing a Japanese bomb.

The United States is concerned that Japan, South Korea or perhaps Taiwan may want to develop their own nuclear weapons programs to counter the threat from North Korea. Such moves would anger China, which already has nuclear weapons, and raise tensions in the region.

Part of Rice’s assignment on this week’s hastily arranged trip to China, Russia, Japan and South Korea is to lessen the temptation to develop separate national nuclear programs by reaffirming the U.S. intention to defend the nations most at risk.

In Japan, Rice said she reaffirmed President Bush’s pledge, made the day of the North’s test last week, “that the United States has the will and the capability to meet the full range — and I underscore the full range — of its deterrent and security commitments to Japan,” Rice said following discussions with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso.

Proliferation of nuclear weapons programs is not in the interests of these Asian countries. China is the BIG DOG in the area and have plenty of NUKES. An arms race of nuclear material does not make the region or world a safer place.

However, Japan and Taiwan are understandably alarmed at preemptive nuclear attacks from China via North Korea – or from North Korea alone.

This pledge of mutual defense is appropriate and timely.

Asian nations MUST now squeeze Kim Jong-Il with United Nations sanctions, force North Korea back to the 6-party talks and negotiate a stand-down of North Korea’s nuclear program – as North Korea has promised.

What doesn’t help are Jimmy Carter and George Soros playing the Bush BLAME GAME.

Stay tuned……

In 1950 China sends hundreds of thousands of ‘volunteers’ to the aid of North Korea which was nearly defeated by a combined force of United Nations, South Korean and U.S. forces. The war ended in a truce in 1953 and China had an estimated 945,000 dead and wounded, North Korea 522,00.

Bill Clinton Watch: Condi vs. Slick Willie

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice participates in an interview conducted by MTV host Gideon Yago, (not shown), at MTV studios, Monday, Sept. 25, 2006 in New York. The interview will air on MTVnews.com and MTV overdrive.

AP: Rice challenges Clinton on terror fight

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice challenged former President Clinton’s claim that he did more than many of his conservative critics to pursue al-Qaida, saying in an interview published Tuesday that the Bush administration aggressively pursued the group even before the 9/11 attacks.

“What we did in the eight months was at least as aggressive as what the Clinton administration did in the preceding years,” Rice said during a meeting with editors and reporters at the New York Post.

If Bill Clinton wants a “WAR” with the current administration he will get one. Clinton LIED under oath and was disbarred. He was IMPEACHED for crimes of moral turpitude.

And Americans are to believe his histrionic gyrations on Fox News Sunday about his role in the global war on terror?

NOPE

The newspaper published her comments after Clinton appeared on “Fox News Sunday” in a combative interview in which he defended his handling of the threat posed by Osama bin Laden and said he “worked hard” to have the al-Qaida leader killed.

“That’s the difference in me and some, including all of the right-wingers who are attacking me now,” Clinton said in the interview. “They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try, they did not try.”

Rice disputed his assessment.

“The notion somehow for eight months the Bush administration sat there and didn’t do that is just flatly false — and I think the 9/11 commission understood that,” she said.

Rice also took exception to Clinton’s statement that he “left a comprehensive anti-terror strategy” for incoming officials when he left office. “We were not left a comprehensive strategy to fight al-Qaida,” she told the newspaper.

The New York Post interview of Condi is here.

Flap wonders when Hillary will BITCH SLAP Bubba because he is hurting his/her legacy, the presidency and the Democrat Party.

Keep talking SLICK.

Condoleezza Rice Watch: Iran is the “Central Bank of Terrorism”

Posted Posted in Condoleezza Rice, Global War on Terror, Iran Nuclear Watch, Politics

Australia’s Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, left, and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice shakes hands during their meeting on Thursday March 16, 2006 in Sydney, Australia. Rice is in Australia to attend the Trilateral Strategic Dialogue with Australia’s Foreign Minister Alexander Downer.

CNN: Rice: Iran ‘terror’s central bank’

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Thursday urged Iran to resume negotiations over its nuclear program, while also calling the country a central banker for terrorism.

Rice was speaking after meeting her Australian counterpart Alexander Downer for talks that covered topics including Iraq, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, Indonesia’s development and the recent nuclear deal between Washington and India.

Rice called Iran a “troublesome state” and the “central banker of terrorism,” though she didn’t elaborate on that, and said it was time for the country to “heed the international community’s call” to resume negotiations on its nuclear program.

Rice said she was “quite certain the (U.N.) Security Council will find an appropriate vehicle for expressing again … the desire of the international community … that Iran return to negotiations.”

Rice is paving the way for economic sanctions to be imposed by the WEST outside the framework of the United Nations. The United States knows that China and/or Russia will VETO any U.N. Security Council action.

Stay tuned for Iran’s response……
