Condoleezza Rice joins Dropbox, discussion widely

Last Wednesday, the cloud storage service Dropbox known that former foreign minister of the United States, Condoleezza Rice, joins the board of directors of the company. The company called Rice "a leader who can help expand. Global presence from us"


The addition of Rice took somewhat different than planned because since the arrival of Rice is Dropbox under fire and the discussion flared up. There is a campaign "Drop Dropbox" started calling to make the service any longer.
The main objection that is mentioned on this site is that Rice was actively involved in the decision to start the war. Iraq Rice also performed according to the website a central role in legitimizing torture under the Bush administration. It is stated that a report by the Senate shows that Rice verbally gave permission to torture suspects and later lied about the extent to which she was involved in this decision.
It is also claimed that Rice was not only a supporter of the extensive domestic spying program under the Bush administration, but they also gave permission without judicial warrant to eavesdrop. Members of the UN Security Council.
"Why in God's name, given what we now know about the secret spying program of the U.S. and the role of rice in there playing, like someone if she is involved in Dropbox, an organization that we trust with our most important business and personal data? "
Finally the website gives an overview of alternatives to Dropbox.


The discussion about the arrival of Rice is widespread. Many websites have a negative sound. Also on twitter are many negative comments found.
