(transcript of full speech is available here):

Rice is not the most dynamic speaker, but I believe this speech will ultimately be viewed as much more historically significant than Obama’s own turgid 2009 speech in Cairo. The spinmeisters in the White House are already shamelessly attempting to re-write history, but for all practical purposes the Administration abandoned the campaign to promote freedom and democracy in the Middle East upon entering office.

Ultimately if America does not stand proudly and assertively on the side of freedom then who will?
