    Lots of talk about this around the internet today.

    Sort of surprised to see Rice emerge as a controversial figure.

    Possible that the Rutgers students confused he with that idiot Susan Rice
    and were really protesting Benghazi.

    I thought this was about Ray Rice.

    Rutgers is German for "Buncha racists."

    Maybe they are protesting her selection to the College Football
    playoff selection committee. Be funny if Rutgers finds themselves
    on the bubble a few years from now.

    So, I guess they're kinda scrambling for a commencement speaker. I hope they invite Don Imus to do it!

    This protest is so 2005.

    Seriously, though, I've wondered why Rice has largely escaped the same level of criticism for starting the Iraq war as the other neo-con douchebags from that era. All I've read suggests she was entirely on board with the nonsense that threw us into that dumb illegal war, but she hasn't taken the same heat as others for being on board. I'll credit the Rutgers community for belatedly holding her feet to the fire.
