It wasn't just the frat boys

Let's not forget Madame Chevron:

Yes, Condaliar Rice uttered this Nixonian nonsense:
"The United States was told, we were told, nothing that violates our obligations under the Convention Against Torture, and so by definition, if it was authorized by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Convention Against Torture."
As to culpabilty....
"I didn't authorize anything. I conveyed the authorization of the administration to the agency, that they had policy authorization, subject to the Justice Department's clearance. That's what I did."
Just carrying water for ... was that your boyfriend W or the Dark Lord hisself? Ooh, that nose is growing.

Girlfriend, we so have a seat for you at the Hague.

When the war crimes trials are held I definitely want her among the defendants.

I remember screaming "*** ******* liar" when she was testifying, on more than one occasion, before Congress. She was saying things I knew were untrue. And oh, the offense she takes if you impugn her "integrity"! She is among the worst of them. (Chevron took her name off their tanker, btw.)

(Chevron took her name off their tanker, btw.)Really?

Somehow, that's nice to know!

When did Chevron take her name off the tanker? And did they give a reason?

Word verification: beverbil.

Ellie, I should have put up the link to that tidbit but here is the paragraph from Wikipedia:
Rice headed Chevron's committee on public policy until she resigned on January 15, 2001, to become National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush. Chevron, for unspecified reasons, honored Rice by naming an oil tanker Condoleezza Rice after her, but controversy led to its being renamed Altair Voyager.
