Rice served in the Clinton administration in various capacities: at the National Security Council from 1993 to 1997; as Director for International Organizations and Peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995; and as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for African Affairs from 1995 to 1997.
At the time of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, Rice reportedly said, "If we use the word 'genocide' and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November [congressional] election?" Rice subsequently acknowledged the mistakes made at the time and felt that a debt needed repaying. The inability or failure of the Clinton administration to do anything about the genocide would inform her later views on possible military interventions. She would later say of the experience: "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."
Okay, 1 million people were killed in 28 days!
She is talking about how the Clinton Administration should not use the word "Genocide" because it makes them look like they are doing nothing and could cost the Democrats the MidTerm elections!!!!
How morally bankrupt of a person is this? They want her as SoS now? I thought Dems cared about Africa and Genocide? How a liberal can support this woman is beyond me?
