Extraordinary lack of contrition for extraordinary rendition
It hasn't been a fun few days on the hill for Condi Rice. First a Code Pink protester confronted her with bloody hands and accused her of war crimes.
Then the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee led by Henry Waxman accused her and the State Department of being lax with government contractors because corruption is rife.
Then poor Condi had to admit that the extraordinary rendition of Canadian citizen Maher Arar to Saudi Arabia, where he was imprisoned and tortured, was not handled how it should have been.
The other shoe did not drop. No apology was issued.
