WASHINGTON (CNN) — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told senators Thursday that the United States faces “no greater challenge from a single country” than from Iran.

Testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Rice said the Iranian government seems “determined … to develop a nuclear weapon in defiance” of the international community.

She called the regime a “central banker” of terror, saying it plays roles in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. She also criticized its “terrible human rights record.”

Rice appeared at the Senate hearing in support of an emergency spending bill that seeks $68 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, including $75 million to promote democracy in Iran.

Is it just me, or does Condi look unusually evil in this photo?
