  •  Busted: Cannot speak French (4.00)
    This post answers several issues noted above.
    1. The State Dept had to admit that she could not speak French.
    2. Did Rice ever claim that she was fluent in Russian?  The State Dept claims that she is fluent in Russian and since she is the Secretary of State, is ultimately responsible for their statements.

    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice charmed the French in Paris this week with a jaunty reference to their national motto, "Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite," and a few other French phrases. The French simply adore their language and VIPs speaking it, even in Rice's distinctively American accent. Rice is fluent in Russian, but not in French, State Department officials said afterward.

    Also this:

    "During an interview Condoleezza Rice describes her stance on abortion as 'mildly pro-choice,' which means she would support abortion, except in cases where the mother is pregnant."

    •  So, now it's the STATE DEPT. . . (none)

       . . . , not just Rice and the MSM, busted in a lie about the language abilities of the Secretary of State!

       Gee, in "Non Bush World," when someone gets busted lying about their resume, they often get fired.

       If this diary doesn't make it to the "Recommended", list, I wish you'd do one on the STATE DEPT's getting busted on this lie.

      •  Her resume (4.00)
        has anyone found her resume/biography that states this?  that's where people get in trouble -- official resume/bios.

        her White House bio and her State Dept bio are roughly the same -- and don't mention languages.  neither does Hoover's.

        Wikipedia, on the other hand, mentions that she speaks Russian, French, and Spanish.  Now, our journalists wouldn't...

        BTW, I found a rather sickening quote by Rice:

        "I want the American people to know the story of what we did before 9-11 and what we're continuing to do now."

        Uhh, see 9/11 Commission testimony.
