Today's Special Guest in the Lie Du'Jour is Condi Rice.
Recently, regarding the nomination of John Bolton to the United Nations, Rice said that Bolton had a "track record of effective multilateralism."
Bolton is on record as saying "If the UN secretariat building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference."
He also said "There is no United Nations. There is an international community that occasionally can be led by the only real power left in the world, and that is the United States, when it suits our interest, and when we can get others to go along."
Even members of Bolton's own party have concerns. Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska said = "We need alliances, we need friends. To go up there and kick the U.N. around doesn't get the job done."
So much for having a record of effective multilateralism.
Maybe this is more of a stupid thing for Rice to say, as opposed to a lie. Either way, it deserves to be posted.
