Condi Rice in Iraq

This sounds good, but isn't she really saying there's no proof at all?
"I certainly can't, and I don't believe the U.S. government can, give you chapter and verse about the involvement of the leadership of the Iranian government. But I think you have to hold the Iranian government as a whole accountable for the activities of its constituent parts," Rice said.

Also, it sounds like "breathing space" is the talking point.
"They are off to a good start," said Rice, referring to Operation Imposing Law. "How the Iraqis use the breathing space that might provide is what is really important," she told reporters.

And, Look who's back to try to massage the image (WaPo.) She's only used for the US audience anymore.
Among the officials accompanying her was Karen P. Hughes, a longtime Bush confidant who currently serves as undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs.

((USAToday) "Insurgent violence remains a concern. Rice's plane circled the (Baghdad) airport for 30 minutes before landing because of military action in the city.")
