Well, well, well, the girl who ignored the flashing red light from Osama bin Laden right (PDB) before 9/11 is now oh so proud that Bush invaded Iraq. Here she is with Judy Woodruff on Bloomberg.

And let's not forget her aluminum tube claim:

RICE: I understand that Americans see on their screens violence. They continue to see Americans killed, and we mourn every death. These are very hard things to do. But I would ask that people remember why we are there.
