It's Official: Condi Rice has gone to the Dark Side UPDATED

The State Department is sort of like the AIDS virus: you often don't know it has infected you until it is too late. And by then, it has rendered you completely spineless.

Condi Rice started out the Bush Administration as a tough-as-nails National Security Advisor who knew the difference between our friends and our enemies. Then came the highly-touted "deal" with North Korea; one which has already fallen apart. But if that wasn't enough, now she appears to have completely gone over the edge; if you listen to what Michael Ledeen has to say, Condi is now wanting to cut another "deal" with Iran. Fool me once, shame on me?

This is a tough quandary for President Bush--he has always shown extreme loyalty to those who have remained loyal to him (witness Gonzales...), and Rice has been nothing if not loyal. But obviously her stance of not negotiating with the #1 State-sponsor of Islamist terror on Planet Earth--a group that has shown since repeatedly since 1979 that it cannot be trusted to act within international norms--has now been compromised. President Bush cannot dump Rice, but she needs to be marginalized now a la Colin Powell. The ghost of Madeline Albright continues to haunt the State Department.

UPDATE: Meanwhile an Iranian traitor tells all about just what the Iranians have been up to--and it is eye-opening to say the least.
