After the release of the August 6th PDB, I think its fair to say that Condoleeza Rice will not serve in a second-term Bush team.

However, she may serve a
five-year term (or multiple five-year terms), in a place more like this

along with some of her colleagues from the current administration.

Yes, Rush, I am suggesting Condoleeza Rice should go to prison for perjury not because she has perjured herself, but because I am angry that she is a black Republican woman. There are few things that Democrats hate more than black Republican women, accept of course, affluent white males, which is why we hate you.




Let's see, "Bin Laden determined to strike US, "

"patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent wtih preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York,"

And:

Sec. 1621. - Perjury generally

Whoever -

(1)

having taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the United States authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare, depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration, deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true; or

(2)

in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury as permitted under section 1746 of title 28, United States Code, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true;

is guilty of perjury and shall, except as otherwise expressly
provided by law, be fined under this title or imprisoned not
more than five years, or both. This section is applicable
whether the statement or subscription is made within or without
the United States.


or in plainer terms

A statement must meet five criteria before it can be considered
perjury under Federal law:

1) The statement must be made under oath.
2) The statement must be material to the case at hand.
3) The statement must be known by its maker to be false.
4) The statement must be demonstrably false.
5) The statement must have been made with an intent to mislead.


I'm no lawyer (just a second-year law student), but it appears we have the prima-facie elements for a perjury case against Ms. Rice.

Maybe we can get you a cell with Rush, Condi.
