Barbara Boxer Attacked?

The following exchange took place during the confirmation hearing for Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza last week:
Boxer: "I personally believe — this is my personal view — that your loyalty to the mission you were given, to sell this war, overwhelmed your respect for the truth,"
Rice: "I never, ever lost respect for the truth in the service of anything. It is not my nature. It is not my character." "And I would hope that we can have this conversation and discuss what happened before and what went on before and what I said without impugning my credibility or my integrity."
So, if someone were attacked here, the question is who attacked who?
According to Boxer, she was the one that was attacked. "She turned and attacked me," the California Democrat told CNN's "Late Edition" in describing the confrontation during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.
Mrs. Boxer yesterday called that response a "good debating technique. When you really don't know what to say about a specific, you just attack the person who is asking the questions," Mrs. Boxer told CNN.
Is it any wonder the American people have taken her and her party out of power?
A note to Mrs. Boxer: When you make up stuff like this, it looks like you think that people are too stupid or lazy to think about what really happened and that they (we) should just belive you. That is just insulting. It doesn't hurt Condi or the President. Don't insult the people that you claim to represent
