Condoleezza Rice Speaking at PSU

On Wednesday, Oct 19th, Former Secretary of State (during the Bush reign) will be giving a keynote speech at PSU. You may recall that this is a lady who had an oil tanker named after her, and who was involved in the Iraq WMD scandal and approving torture by the US Military.

For reservations contact Debbie Hutchins, 503-725-8135 / debbie.hutchins@pdx.edu. More info on the awards dinner or keynote speech.

Video: Condi Rice Arrrest Warrant Portland Oregon 10-19-11 21.Oct.2011 09:08

joe anybody

An arrest warrant was presented to the police who did nothing in regards to Condi Rice and her war crime. A mock cage and look a like staged a street theater in front of the Convention center on 10/19/11 ...

So i guess this is how Rice makes a living in the private sector these days, by getting paid for speeches. I wonder what the subject matter will be, and whether there will be a Q&A afterwords? I'm going to guess the attendance and questions (especially) will be closely vetted.

Condi in Portland, at PSU and the Covention Center 10.Sep.2011 11:30

Lone Vet lonevet2008@comcast.net

Condi Rice is a war criminal and should not be allowed to come to Portland without a confrontation. She is a monster and one of the principles in the Bush Administration. The fact that she would be invited to be a key note speaker is outrageous. What is PSU going to do next, dig up the body of Mussolini and use it as a prop for a noble government?

If you want to know more about this defective human being and our national shame just google Condi Rice and war crimes. Will you join us in protesting her coming to Portland? Individuals For Justice protested her coming to Portland not long ago and she called in sick at the last moment. I am stunned that PSU would want to bring her here to be a key note speaker.

ARTICLE TO READ:

Written by Chris Floyd
Tuesday, 04 April 2006 08:42
The incomparable Robert Parry puts Condi Rice clearly in the frame for war crimes after her extraordinary confessions during her trip to the UK last week -- confessions that have been entirely ignored by the US press. While there was a brief flurry over her casual remark about "thousands of tactical mistakes" in Iraq, no one but Parry caught her admission -- nay, her boast -- that the Bush Regime's policy in Iraq was an open, deliberate, carefully considered violation of the Nuremberg-based laws against aggressive war: principles articulated most forcefully by America's own representative to that international tribunal, and which were later incorporated into the UN Charter.

piecemeal justice 11.Sep.2011 03:23

Justice was never completely served. The banking interests and corporations who funded the Nazis were never served justice. Actually, they all became even MORE wealthy when they got to fund the post-war effort. Re-building all the stuff they helped destroy.

Secretary Rice is a war criminal 11.Sep.2011 13:52

Lawrence J. Maushard

Former Secretary of State Rice is absolutely a war criminal. She deserves no peace or freedom. She and the other high Bush administration officials

must be tried and jailed at The Hague for illegal invasion and occupation, torture, and additional crimes against humanity.

I pray for justice. America must not be afforded immunity because it is a superpower.

America must be held accountable.

Rice out of Portland!

Condi Rice is not a war criminal. You will not arrest her or anybody else. I just might show up at your silly little protest and add some real truth to power. Yeah, I'm talking to you, lone vertebrate. I'll just pretend your hearing is poor and give you this truth in full volume.

Condi will be met 12.Sep.2011 09:35

Lone Vet lonevet2008@comcast.net

Condi is one of the principles of torture in the cheney/bush administration. If you don't believe she should be arrested for war crimes you are the least among us that calls themselves american. If you want to protest our calling her out, "Come on down." She is a monster and we will tell her so no matter where she goes. Someday she will answer for her crimes against humanity but for now we will be there when she makes a buck off the dead.

Sign Code Pink Petition to Bring Bush War Criminals To Trial 16.Sep.2011 17:22

E. Goldman

Condoleezza Rice is speaking in Portland OR on October 19. Start your protest today. Tell Holder To Expand Criminal Investigations to include Senior Bush Administration! Thus far the U.S. has failed to prosecute anyone up the chain of command for abuses that have occurred in the highest offices of the United States of America. Sign the petition asking the Attorney General to expand the scope of the Justice Department's criminal investigation of the torture program to include senior Bush officials for the deliberately misleading Congress into a war with Iraq resulting over 4000 American deaths, tens of thousands troops wounded, over half a million Iraqi dead and trillions of dollars wasted on military contractors. Go to Code Pink website and sign the petition: http://codepink.salsalabs.com/o/424/t/4589/petition.jsp?petition_KEY=1921
