Heckuva job, Condi

From an article this morning about the Mid East situation:

"A U.S. official described Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as being 'under siege' but holding firm any cessation of hostilities must include a permanent disarming of Lebanonese Hezbollah militants.

There is agreement on humanitarian and reconstruction packages, but those can't be implemented with the fighting continuing, the source said.

Diplomats were said to be working on some form of statement because no agreement could be reached on a full communique due to the failure to reach a consensus.

In difficult discussions, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan led demands for an immediate cease-fire, with trickier political issues to be dealt with at a later date.

But Rice remained steadfast, insisting a halt to the violence without the permanent disarming of Hezbollah would be a mistake."

She's alone in this position. Practically the whole world wants some sort of cease fire, but we say "not yet". The house is burning, but we're at the front door saying "no fire hose until we install smoke detectors. Come back later". Unbelievably pathetic.

I think she's doing a heckuva job.
