Rice Watch Day 10

It looks like the heat on Rice is easing up a bit, but the watch endures. In large part, this is because reporters aren’t asking the Administration questions like the one Bob Somerby suggests:

Mr. President, we have been told that Dr. Condoleezza Rice did not read last October’s National Intelligence Estimate and therefore did not know that the State Department doubted the claim that Iraq sought uranium in Africa. We’re also told that she didn’t read CIA memos on this subject. Are you concerned when your National Security Adviser is so poorly informed on such a subject? And do you now believe what you said in your State of the Union—that Saddam Hussein “recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa?”
