I thought of her wicked words

and was certain someone would connect her statement to the rest of the offenders quoted. There was not even the slightest change of expression, no twinge of conscience at all, when Albright answers the question of whether the deaths of 500,000 children was worth our country's enforcement of the UN's embargo against Iraq. "A hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it."

No wonder Albright was awarded the Medal of Freedom by Obama back in May this year. The first president to assume a seat on the UN's security counsel would obviously approve of her support of UN policy, though he didn't mentioned that in the ceremony.

You've got to wonder how Bob Dylan felt when he was given the same award that she got that day! Thanks Tama, for posting this thread.
