I share your contempt for Condi's reasoning.

I worked with her on dissolution-of-Soviets-and-Warsaw-Pact issues when she was in the Bush (Sr.) administration (I think she was on the NSC then?) and I was in another national security organization but obviously the various entities met to forge US responses.
