The Washington Times publishes excerpts of an interview with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. (Via Power Line.) The article is headlined by her comments on race, and on that topic what she says sounds about right. (ASIDE: One is struck by the fact that Rice, who (unlike Obama) actually grew up in the segregated South, managed to avoid forming ties with any racist nutcase ministers.)
However, I was troubled by this bit at the end:
Miss Rice cited resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ending North Korea’s nuclear programs, and securing Iraq and Afghanistan as the Bush administration’s main foreign-policy priorities for the rest of its term.
What about Iran? Continuing the quixotic Israeli-Palestinian “peace process” is a higher priority than keeping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons?
