Condoleeza Rice George Stephanopoulos

ABC interview

1 Nov, 2011

Rice discusses Iraq War, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, and her new memoir.

The Middle East is the most volatile area in the world. We now know that it is also the cradle of Al Qaeda and extremism…We didn’t go to Iraq to bring democracy to the Iraqis…We were very clear about this. This was a security threat. And I, as much as anybody, understand and really regret the cost, particularly in lives. But I also know that nothing of value is ever won without sacrifice.
