The heads are still exploding from former vice president Dick Cheney's recently published memoir.

The latest blow-up, on Wednesday, came from former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Rice spoke out against several claims about her in Cheney’s book, “In My Time: A Personal and Professional Memoir,” saying that she viewed it as an “attack on my integrity.”

In an interview with Reuters Wednesday, Rice protested Cheney’s suggestion that she had misled President George W. Bush about nuclear diplomacy
with North Korea.

"I kept the president fully and completely informed about every in and out of the negotiations with the North Koreans," Rice told Reuters in her first public comments on the matter. "You can talk about policy differences without suggesting that your colleague somehow misled the president. You know, I don't appreciate the attack on my integrity that that implies."
