Ambassador Susan Rice

Lessons learned well at Stanford and Oxford, where they teach the unevolved perspective that Nietzsche was a philosopher and not a psychopath.  Ambassador Rice’s PRIORITIES ARE UNDERLINED IN THE EXCERPT BELOW.

Sorry, but the evidence indicates to me that her reported passion about Darfur is about resources, and the alleged regret about Rwanda appears to be less than sincere, witness AFRICOM,  Libya, and Ms. Rice’s statements on Palestine.  She couldn’t bring herself even to vote for a resolution stating  the obvious that the Israeli settlements are illegal, even though she stated after the vote that they are clearly illegal.  Later she allowed as how her veto was political, not surprisingly the same priority (politics) that she had at the time of the Rwandan genocide.  Does the suffering of the Palestinian people matter more than “politics?”  It’s so much easier just to tell the truth and vote accordingly.

Susan Rice has been criticized for her role in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda that would claim over 800,000 lives. There was great pressure on Susan Rice, who was Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs in the Clinton Administration, to intervene. Many in the State department have commented on Susan Rice stating that “it was an election year” and that is why she did not want the U.S. involved. In Samantha Power’s study of the U.S. reaction to genocide, As an Africa expert on the NSC, she shocked an interagency conference call by interjecting domestic politics into the discussion of the administration’s policy options. “If we use the word ‘genocide,’” Rice allegedly asked her colleagues, “and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November [congressional] election?” Rice later told Power that while she didn’t remember saying that [Although “many” others reportedly did remember!], “If I said it, it was completely inappropriate.” About Rwanda, Rice later told Power, “I swore to myself that if I ever faced such a crisis again, I would come down on the side of dramatic action, going down in flames if that was required,” which might explain Rice’s passion about Darfur.


  1. Can’t but say, “Amen.”

  2. Jonny Trumbull says:

    Wow. Who are you guys? Susan Rice is a “miseducated Negro”? The 1930s called and they want their racial prejudices back.

  3. Yes, she is miseducated. Who but a miseducated person could place possible domestic political concerns over the lives of hundreds of thousands of people? Consider:
