Former Republican Party Rockstar Gets Frustrated

Secretary of State Rice has had a rough time at the State Department. I doubt she has much time to spare to deal with interference from rogue administration officials.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Tuesday sharply rebuked a fellow member of the Bush administration who criticized international negotiations aimed at persuading North Korea to scrap its nuclear weapons program.Rice said that Jay Lefkowitz, President Bush’s special envoy on North Korean human rights, “doesn’t know what’s going on in the six-party talks, and he certainly has no say on what American policy will be in the six-party talks.”

Lefkowitz said Thursday that the North is not serious about disarming and probably still will have its nuclear weapons when the next U.S. president takes over in January 2009, despite four years of nuclear disarmament talks by the United States, the Koreas, Japan, China and Russia.

Sources inside the State Department report that when Rice heard about Lefkowitz’s dis, she demanded that he present himself in her office at once. She declared, “I will pop his head right off his scrawny neck and use his skull as a margarita glass at the signing ceremony for the six-party talks. Since he’s so desperate to be a part of things. Punk.

She still scares me.
