"Any country mad at Condi for not visiting them is SMALL MINDED."


The AUSTRALIAN-March 10, 2006

DENNIS Richardson, Australia's ambassador to the US in Washington, has described criticism of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's cancelled visits to Southeast Asia and Australia over the past 12 months as "unfounded and unreasonable".

Last week Richard Armitage, former deputy secretary of state under Ms Rice's predecessor Colin Powell, told The Australian that Ms Rice had made "tremendous errors" in cancelling trips to the region, including a no show at the Association of South East Asian Nations ministerial forum last year. In her first year as Secretary of State she has spent less than a day in the Southeast Asia region - a brief stopover in Thailand in July - but she will rectify that next week, travelling to Indonesia and Australia. Her trip is also taking in Peru and Chile.

"Secretary Rice has what I would think most people would consider to be a pretty busy job," Mr Richardson told a US-Indonesian lobby group in Washington yesterday.

"She has demands on her globally-----------








--------------and I think the previous cancelled visits have come about because of other commitments that have come up at the last minute. I think she has been very conscious of some of the comments that have been been made about the delays. But I think those comments have been unfounded and unreasonable."

He added any country that felt slighted because Ms Rice cancelled trips was "small minded", given the issues that the secretary had been dealing with in the past year, including North Korea, a nuclear push by Iran and the war in Iraq.

2. Look at that last pic, and consider the circumstances...
Georgie is in LOVE with this hag!

I'm not just saying that because it annoys Freepers anymore;
I have become utterly convinced that it is really true.
