Why Do Former Bush Administration Figures Remain In the Public Sphere?

According to CNN, Condoleezza Rice defended former President George W. Bush as she claimed:
"He was also very clear that we would do nothing -- nothing -- that was against the law or against our obligations internationally."
I wonder if she knows the difference between a normative statement, which this is, versus an empirical statement, which makes her defense of Bush false. It doesn't rally matter what President Bush would or would not do, it matters what he did.

Just because the President declares something to be legal does not make it.... oh, forget it. At least one can get some pleasure out of watching a Stanford student grill RIce in a way that the MSM would not.

Whatever, Solon. You weren't in charge when 9-11 happened, so you can't possibly know anything about the decisions that had to be made. In fact, you shouldn't even be able to talk about those decisions.
