“If we use the word 'genocide' and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November congressional election?" in her attempted defense of the Clinton Administration’s lack of inaction in response to the genocide that was taking place in the tiny African Nation of Rwanda in 1994. It was later revealed that President Clinton along with Madeline Albright, Anthony Lake, Warren Christopher and Ms. Rice were all part of a coordinated effort not only to block U.N. action to stop the genocide, but worked behind the scene to craft public opinion on the issue by removing the words such as, "genocide and ethnic cleansing" from official State Department and CIA Memos.
In 1997, when President Clinton sought to promote Ms. Rice to the position of Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, members of the Congressional Black Caucus objected to the appointment based on her history of being part of the Washington Elite Class. This is the same Congressional Black Caucus, who is now in 2012 attempting to defend her with trumped up charges of racism and sexism. Even as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, many inside and outside of Washington questioned Ms. Rice’s tenure, as she would reap praise on and worked with certain African Dictators with questionable records.
