Rice's Surprise Visit

Condoleeza Rice made a surprise visit to Lebanon to "discuss" the situation with Prime Minister Fouad Siniora. You can read the New York Times article here

In that article, there is a description of an interesting encounter some irate Americans had with Karen Hughes.

During a refueling stop in Shannon, Ireland, Ms. Rice’s aides ran into a tired and angry group of Americans who had been evacuated from Lebanon and were trying to get home, but their plane, which stopped in Shannon, had broken down.Some of the Americans recognized Karen Hughes, the assistant secretary of state for public diplomacy. Within minutes she was surrounded by the group, who said they had been traveling for five days and had been at the airport for 24 hours.
“I am so sorry,” she said, sitting at a bar drinking wine.

Wouldn't it have been great if they had just torn her to pieces.
