Rice defends U.S.-Iraq ties

September 08, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Facing allegations that the U.S. spied on its Iraqi allies, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice defended relations between the two governments as "very open and transparent."

Rice did not directly confront the assertion, raised in a new book by Bob Woodward, that the Bush administration spied extensively on Prime Minister Nouri Maliki and other Iraqi officials.

Rice said in Morocco, "I myself work constantly with Prime Minister Maliki, and we share information."
