“personally approved the CIA’s use of waterboarding on prisoners”
Isn’t it nice of these students to decide for everyone who should be allowed to speak?

Socialist students: Don’t let ‘war criminal’ Condoleezza Rice speak
A socialist student group at the University of Buffalo is calling out the school administration for hosting “war criminal” Condoleezza Rice as a “distinguished speaker.”
The former U.S. Secretary of State and special assistant to President George W. Bush for national security is scheduled to speak Wednesday as part of a distinguished speaker series hosted by the Graduate Student Association.
“UB YDSA emphatically supports freedom of speech, including the right to protest, and welcomes a variety of viewpoints to campus…,” the Young Democratic Socialists of America statement reads, claiming that “as National Security Advisor in the Bush Administration, [Rice] personally approved the CIA’s use of waterboarding on prisoners. She lied about the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and used that as justification to wage a war of aggression that directly caused the violent deaths of nearly 500,000 people.”
