Cassandra: Rice with Everything - Drop that Idea (Tech Crunch link)

By Graham K. Rogers


There were a number of announcements concerning Dropbox and its new directions earlier today, but the one that made me stop in my tracks was the point that Condoleeza Rice was being appointed to the board of Dropbox.

She ranks in my world as one of the least desirable persons I would wish to meet. There are several questions unanswered concerning her involvement in the rush to war in Iraq, particularly when the very weapons of mass destruction that she and her cohorts confirmed were in Sadam Hussein's hands and ready to be deployed, were actually long gone. The effects are still being felt.

I am pleased to see - as reported by Sarah Perez on Tech Crunch - that a number of others are dissatisfied with the appointment and have created an online petition, "demanding that users tell Dropbox they're opposed this move" and threatening to leave the if Rice is not removed.

A link to the online petition is available in the article, where there is information concerning Rice and her questionable actions while a member of the Bush Administration.
