On ABC’s This Week, Jake Tapper asked Rice:
Look at this map, if you would. There have been protests around the world over the last several days. And President Obama pledged to repair America's relationships with the Muslim world. Why does the U.S. seem so impotent? And why is the U.S. even less popular today in some of these Muslim and Arab countries than it was four years ago?
Rice’s answer was astounding:
Jake, we’re not impotent. We’re not even less popular, to challenge that assessment. I don’t know on what basis you make that judgment.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty. Thomas Jefferson
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
