Condi Rice: Give Obama a Break on Terrorism

Published May 7, 2010

CINCINNATI (AP) — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice isn't willing to join Republican lawmakers criticizing the Obama administration after the attempted attack on Times Square.

In Cincinnati for a foundation fundraiser, Rice told reporters on Thursday that it's a very tough job fighting terrorism. She says her philosophy is that you give your successor a break.

Earlier in the day, House Minority Leader John Boehner (BAY'-nur) of Ohio said President Barack Obama and his national security team have no comprehensive plan to fight terrorism but are relying on luck.

Rice was a member of the administration of former President George W. Bush for eight years, first as national security adviser and later as secretary of state.
