Frasi Condoleezza Rice


„And so, by definition, if it was authorized by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Conventions Against Torture.“

— Condoleezza Rice
Context: In terms of the enhanced interrogation and so forth, anything that was legal and was going to make this country safer, the president wanted to do. Nothing that was illegal. And nothing that was going to make the country less safe. Unless you were there, in a position of responsibility after September 11th, you cannot possibly imagine the dilemmas that you faced in trying to protect Americans. You were determined to do anything that you could that was legal to prevent that from happening again... We were told, nothing that violates our obligations under the Convention Against Torture. And so, by definition, if it was authorized by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Conventions Against Torture. Quoted in Glenn Kessler, [ "Rice Defends Enhanced Interrogations,"] Washington Post (2009-04-30).

„If you have any doubt about the degree with which this is self-defense, just look at those pictures from September 11th.“

[ Remarks With Equatorial Guinean President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogol April 12, 2006.

„Ron Paul: We are escalating our sharp rhetoric toward Iran, We're deploying additonal carrier group and Patriot missiles to the region. And, although Iran has [http://www. pbs. org/wgbh/pages/frontline/showdown/themes/grandbargain. html approached] the United States to establish serious dialog two times since 9/11, they have been rebuffed both times...
Condelezza Rice:... When we have a carrier strike group into the gulf, or provide PAC-3, which is a defensive system, it's simply to demonstrate that the United States remains determined to defend its interests in the gulf, and the interests of its allies. And that, congressman, is a position that has been held by American presidents going back for nearly 60 years. I would just note that these are discrete respones to Iranian activities that are really deeply concerning, not just for us, but for the rest of the world as well. Now as to Tehran, and whether we can talk to them. I offered in May to reverse 27 years of American policy, and to meet my counterpart any place, any time, to talk about any set of issues that Iran wishes to talk about, if they would just do one thing. And that is, adhere to the demand that the international community is making, that they stop enrichment and reprocessing, so that we that while we're talking, they're not improving their capability to get a nuclear weapon. So I think, congressman, the question isn't why won't we talk to Tehran, the question is why won't they talk to us.“

[ State Department annual budget request, Foreign Affairs Committee], February 2, 2007.

„I think the word of the United States has been as good as gold in its international dealings and its agreements.“
