Condoleeza Rice: “Stop making excuses for terrorists”

In an interview with Jim Lehrer (he offers his own erudition, referring to Muslim experts) Rice offers her astute analyis on why terrorists are committing attacks, “they’re doing it because they want to create chaos and undermine our way of life.” So much for everyone else, including Robert Pape who has suggested that the primary reason is not that “they hate us” behind such attacks, but rather American foreign policy directed towards the Muslim world. Convenient, then, for Rice to take the Bush “they hate our freedom” line and completely dismiss any opinion that counters her’s or the administration’s no matter how well documented or scholarly. C&L has the video.
