Condoleezza Rice Argues, "We Didn't Torture Anyone" - Video

Torture? What's that??

As Stanford University students grilled former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice on interrogation decisions pertaining to the Bush-era, I thought the lady was smart enough to get her points across - by hook or by crook!!

It's perhaps the first time that Rice has been made to go on record about the torture tactics (oops, you can't call it 'torture', Ms Rice might get annoyed!!) since the current administration made the memos public.

Commendable effort by the students. Catch the YouTube video.
