“participated in creating a rationale for the illegal invasion of Iraq”
If Rice was a Democrat, this would be labeled as racism, but she’s a Republican who worked in the Bush administration so it’s OK.

Academics demand public service award be taken away from Condi Rice
Numerous political scientists have signed on to a petition urging the American Political Science Association to rescind an award given to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The former secretary of state, currently a professor at Stanford University, was recently granted the Hubert H. Humphrey Award for public service. The prize is given to one who “exemplifies the contributions that political scientists can make to public as well as academic life,” according to the announcement.
But the petition created by Amherst College’s Thomas L. Dumm and Jodi Dean of Hobart and William Smith Colleges points to Rice’s tenure during the George W. Bush administration, specifically her role in the 2003 Iraq invasion and associated policies:
By giving the 2018 Hubert H. Humphrey Award to Condeleeza Rice the APSA has honored a person who actively participated in creating a rationale for the illegal invasion of Iraq, participated in and defended the creation of policies of rendition and torture against foreign nationals, supported the creation of a concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, and aided and abetted the deliberate and systematic lies that were told to the American public to encourage their support for the invasion of Iraq, which, from its inception and to this day, has had catastrophic consequences for the world.
