You all remember the huff and puff that Rice made when Israel refused to allow seven Gaza students to leave on a Fulbright scholarships to the US?

She made a scene and demanded they be let go, and then personally got them their visas.

And so they got their exit visas from Israel and entry visas into the US.

But the US State Department decided to investigate their backgrounds a little deeper than the Rice cake did after they got some more information, and realized that Rice made a big mistake.

Three of the students were allowed to stay in the States, and four had their visas immediately revoked - including one who already landed in the US, who was unceremoniously put on a plane back.

Statements were made that perhaps they should have dug a little deeper in the first place to ensure who they were giving the scholarships and visa to.
