“United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs David Miliband visit Google’s Mountain View, CA, headquarters for a conversation with Google Senior VP David Drummond. This event took place on May 22, 2008, as part of the @Google series.” AtGoogleTalks

At the beginning she mentions that she was once one of Google Co-Founder Sergei Brin’s teachers at Stanford University. Mighty interesting bit of data there. Later on she says she’ll be teaching again there soon.

Talks about many subjects including innovation & future markets, early on. On Iraq, she admits that many books will be written about all of the mistakes the Bush administration made, herself included.

The best part comes at roughly 0:26:00 she admits that the US Government is never going to improve America’s image, that its instead up to citizens traveling abroad. Its just too bad that most “Americans” are afraid to leave even if they can actually afford it, which narrow the odds considering its the governments fault we’re hated and often depleted.

You’d think that by now 9/11 wouldn’t still be continuously regurgitated by members of BushCo., but Condi didn’t fail those who essentially need reconfirmation of the tragedy to somehow justify global tyranny.

She also faces some tough audience questioning about things like violating treaties and torture, towards the very end.
