    A little too little and a little too late, aye Ms. Incompetent?

    Condi - the i stands for incompetent shoulda been on this horse the moment Arafat died... This is just rediculous!!!

    Rice urges Congress to support Abbas's security forces

    Washington- US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice urged
    Congress on Wednesday to support the funding of Palestinian security
    forces loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas.
    Congress has held up an 86-million-dollar Bush administration
    proposal to help train and equip Abbas' forces since the announcment
    of a unified Palestinian government that includes Abbas' Fatah party
    and Hamas, a militant group regarded by Washington as a terrorist
    organization.

    Rice said she will provide Congress with a new spending plan that
    will contain a "firewall" to ensure any funding will not go to Hamas,
    which has refused to recognize Israel and renounce violence, as
    demanded by the United States, European Union, United Nations and
    Russia, which collectively are known as the quartet.

    "I believe very strongly we do need to support the development of
    security forces that are loyal to those who accept the quartet
    principles, because I'm quite certain that those who do not accept it
    will continue to build their security forces," Rice said during a
    House budget hearing.

    Rice will travel to the Middle East for the third time since the
    beginning of the year on Friday to meet with Abbas in Ramallah and
    Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in Jerusalem. She will meet with
    Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Aswan, Egypt during a meeting of
    moderate Arab countries. She also will met Jordan's King Abdullah in
    Amman during the four-day trip.

    Abbas has been unable to persuade Hamas to meet the quartet's
    demands as part of the agreement for a unity government aimed at
    ending weeks of fighting between Hamas militants and Fatah's security
    forces.

    The United States and European Union cut off aid to the
    Palestinian government last year after Hamas won legislative
    elections. Although humanitarian aid continued through international
    organizations, the end of western aid crippled the Palestinian
    government.

    Rice said aid will not be restored until Hamas recognizes Israel's
    right to exist and repudiates violence.

    "The United States is not prepared to change its assistance
    policies toward this government, because it does not recognize those
    foundational principles for peace," Rice said.

    Rice acknowledged the unity government poses "something of a
    challenge," to US policy and maintained that US officials will talk
    to members of the government who accept the quartet principles and
    have "a record of fighting for peace."

    Son, how can you continue to defend the indefensible?

    Look up the word incompetent in the dictionary and Condi's picture is listed there. I guess it takes time to learn what diplomacy is? If it's not incompetence then it's a lack of intelligence, but Condi's not stupid, so what else could it be???

    What did they do when Arafat died? Perfect opportunity to support a Palestinian leadership that might be more manageable, yet they sat there with their thumbs up their arse...doing nothing... Now the problem is worse than had they been proactive. D'oh!
