Rice began to learn French, music, figure skating and ballet at the age of three.In 1981, she was hired by Stanford University to be a professor, and later on, promoted to Provost.
She attended an international politics course taught by Josef Korbel, which sparked her interest in the Soviet Union and international relations. Rice later described Korbel (who was the father of Madeleine Albright, a future U.S. Secretary of State), as a central figure in her life.
In 1974, at age 19, Rice was inducted into the honor society Phi Beta Kappa, and was awarded a B.A., cum laude, in political science by the University of Denver. She obtained a master's degree in political science from the University of Notre Dame in 1975. She first worked in the State Department in 1977, during the Carter administration, as an intern in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. In 1981, at the age of 26, she received her Ph.D. in political science from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver.
One doesn't begin to learn French, music, figure skating and ballet at the age of THREE, then go onto to obtain a B.A, then a Master's Degree and finally, a Ph.D by being a DUMB-ASS,so she must be a lying, sack of shit when it comes to 9/11 Truth.
Rice was a proponent of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. After Iraq delivered its declaration of weapons of mass destruction to the United Nations on December 8, 2002, Rice wrote an editorial for The New York Times entitled "Why We Know Iraq Is Lying".
"Why We Know Condi Rice was LYING about 9/11
A 9/11 question for Condoleezza Rice
"No one could have predicted it."
That's what Condoleezza Rice said about 9/11. Yes, George W. Bush received a Presidential Daily Brief on Aug. 6, 2001, and yes, that brief was headlined, "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." But Rice and other administration officials have long maintained that no one could have predicted that terrorists would hijack a plane and try to use it as a weapon. "I don't think anybody could have predicted . . . that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile," Rice said at a press briefing in May 2002.
Well, that's not quite true. Someone could have predicted it, and someone actually did. As we mentioned last night, today's New York Times brings news of a previously undisclosed report from the 9/11 Commission. According to the Times, the report says that the Federal Aviation Administration "had indeed considered the possibility that terrorists would hijack a plane and use it as a weapon," and that it actually warned U.S. airports in 2001 that terrorists might hijack an airplane in order to "commit suicide in a spectacular explosion."
EMERGENCY RESPONSE TO TERRORISM, SELF-STUDY, 1997
August, 1997: The cover of FEMA’s emergency response to terrorism depicts the World Trade Center in cross-hairs.
(Since these training manuals were free from FEMA to firefighters, I originally ordered "Emergency Response to Terrorism: Self-Study" in late 1999. As another firefighter was preparing a class on mass casualty incidents, he asked if he could borrow my copy. I gave it to him, told him to keep up, since it was free to me. That copy had the front page that showed an airliner that had flown into a skyscraper.
In early 2001, I was tasked with giving the FD a class on mass casualty incidents, so I again ordered the FEMA manual, "Emergency Response to Terrorism: Self-Study," It arrived in late September 2001, with the front cover torn off and a letter dated September 19, 2001 with a FEMA letter head and the letter said:
"The Federal Emergency Management Agency has removed the covers from its stock of "Emergency Response to Terrorism" manuals because of the sensitivities to the feelings of the survivors and families affected by the events of September 11, 2001."
Right. In government speak, that's called "CYA," or "Covering Your Ass."
Then, we discovered a second, even more sinister plot: Project Bojinka… This was a plot to blow up 11 airlines over the Pacific Ocean, all in a 48-hour period… Then we found another document that discussed a second alternative to crash the 11 planes into selected targets in the United States instead of just blowing them up in the air. These included the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia; the World Trade Center in New York; the Sears Tower in Chicago; the Transamerica Tower in San Francisco; and the White House in Washington, DC… I submitted my findings to NBI officials, who most certainly turned over the report (and the computer) either to then Senior Superintendent Avelino Razon of the [Philippine National Police] or to Bob Heafner of the FBI… I have since had meetings with certain US authorities and they have confirmed to me that indeed, many things were done in response to my report.”

Between December 5 and December 31, 2000: FAA Training Exercises Reportedly Include Scenarios ‘Close to 9/11 Plot’
The FAA practices for scenarios similar to the attacks that take place on 9/11 as part of at least one training exercise this month, according to a liaison officer with the agency. John Hawley, who works for the FAA’s intelligence division as a liaison to the State Department, will later recall that during an exercise, or exercises, this month, some scenarios are practiced that are “pretty damn close to [the] 9/11 plot.”
