The future is with us today.

This exchange between Condoleeza Rice and Finnish Foreign Minister Erkki Tuomioja took place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly and concerned "rendition flights" of suspected terrorists. I won't editorialize except to say that Rice's attitude is extremely telling and can't help reminding me of Bush's comment that Iraq was the next President's problem.

Tuomioja: "We all agree on the need to fight terrorism but we should do so in a way that does not create more terrorism in the future."

Rice: "Let's deal with those who are trying to kill us now and leave the future for some other time."

Tuomioja: "The future is with us today."
