Found this info this AM, looks like Condi and George are at odds as to how to handle the Israel/Lebanon conflict, have to wonder what this is leading to... guess someone has some common sense in this matter, too bad it is not George. http://www.insightmag.com/Media/MediaManager/Condi4.htm Bush and Condi clash over Israel; president overrules her for the first time Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has become increasingly dismayed over President Bush's support for Israel to continue its war with Hezbollah. State Department sources said Ms. Rice has been repeatedly stymied in her attempts to pressure Israel to end strikes against Hezbollah strongholds in Lebanon. The sources said the secretary's trip to the Middle East last week was torpedoed by the Israeli air strike of a Lebanese village in which 25 people were killed. "I've never seen her so angry," an aide said. The U.S. response to the Israeli-Hezbollah war was said to have divided both the administration as well as the family of President George W. Bush. At the same time, it marked the first time since Ms. Rice became secretary of state that the president has overruled her.
