Condi on Torture & Foreign Policy

Interesting YouTube video on Condoleezza Rice answering questions at Stanford about foreign policy and torture. It get's pretty heated but it's a great Q&A because it's so raw. She makes some great points about the pressure they were under after 9/11. She could have done without the condescenion about doing your homework though and just because the president condones something, doesn't make it right. Her unwillingness to answer the question of whether waterboarding is torture tells you all you need to know.

The whole torture thing really bothers me. I can't the government officials actually condoned this and the rest of the population let it go on.
