Rice 'forced to sleep on floor'

Edited on Mon Apr-03-06 07:45 PM by cal04
BRITAIN'S Foreign Secretary Jack Straw was rapped for ungentlemanly conduct after reportedly commandeering US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's private quarters on her official jet. Ms Rice was reported in a number of British newspapers to have graciously offered her British counterpart the use of her bed and cabin on the Boeing 757 plane and Mr Straw ungallantly accepted, leaving her to sleep on the floor.

What one newspaper called "Bedgate" is said to have happened as the political bedfellows flew to Kuwait at the weekend before transferring to a military flight bound for Baghdad. Ms Rice was in Mr Straw's northwest England constituency of Blackburn last week in a reciprocal visit after the British politician toured her native Alabama last year.

The Washington Post reported that Ms Rice's reciprocation of hospitality took place flying to Kuwait before transferring to a military flight into Baghdad. The fact that she had given up her cabin with the only bed on the plane came to light when flight attendants had trouble clearing the galley because the secretary of state was sleeping in the aisle. Mr Straw was enjoying the fold-out bed in Ms Rice's cabin which boasts enough room for a desk and seating for meetings.,,1745605,00.html
