Hillary: GOP Politics Inflame Koran Situation

From a ‘wide ranging’ interview with CNN’s foreign affairs reporter Elise Labott on Sunday from Rabat, Morocco:


Secretary Clinton talks Afghanistan, 2012 politics with CNN’s Elise Labott

LABOTT: President Obama’s apology has become very controversial. I mean, obvi [sic] Newt Gingrich and others have made this apology part of the campaign but other experts in Afghanistan are saying this apology sends the wrong message: It gives the Taliban an excuse to go against us, to help use our enemies against us and also a lot of these attacks that are happening to American, these horrible attacks, seem to be in retaliation for something the U.S. is taking responsibility for.

CLINTON: Well, I find it somewhat troubling that our politics would inflame such a dangerous situation in Afghanistan. I well remember during the eight years of President Bush’s administration, when something happened that was regrettable, unintentional, as this incident was, President Bush was quick to say, look, we are sorry about this, this is something we obviously did not mean to do. That’s all that President Obama was doing, and it was the right thing to do to have our president on record as saying this was not intentional, we deeply regret it, and now we are hoping that, you know, voices inside Afghanistan will join that of President Karzai and others in speaking out to try to calm the situation. It is deeply regrettable, but now it is out of hand and it needs to stop…

How come no one ever asks Mrs. Clinton about the reports that the Korans were defaced by Muslim prisoners writing in them? And how come no one ever asks Mrs. Clinton about her endless criticism of President Bush over his handling of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Meanwhile, lest we forget, back in January 2007, while campaigning for President in Baghdad, Iraq, Mrs. Clinton pronounced, "I don’t know that the American people or the Congress at this point believe this mission can work." According to ABC News, Clinton had doubts the US mission could succeed and that it was time to start re-deploying U.S. troops out of Iraq.

In February 2007, Hillary announced in a video on her campaign website that "now it’s time to say the redeployment should start in 90 days or the Congress will revoke authorization for this war."

And in July 2007, Hillary demanded that the Pentagon publicly announce its Iraq withdrawal schedule. And when the Deputy Secretary of Defense Department said doing this would help the insurgents, she mocked him saying that “undersecretary Edelman has his priorities backward.” And she called the secretary’s claim “outrageous and dangerous.”

It should also be recalled that back in September 2007, Mrs. Clinton also famously questioned the credibility of General Petraeus during his appearance before the Senate to explain how the Iraq ‘surge’ was working.

At that time, Hillary scolded Petraeus, saying that his progress report on Iraq required "a willing suspension of disbelief." Of course, it turned out that the General was correct and Mrs. Clinton was laughably wrong.

And never mind that, way back in June 2006, Hillary called the Republicans a "disgrace" for playing politics with the war in Iraq.

By the way, speaking of ‘politics ending at the water’s edge,’ in this same interview even the CNN reporter thought it was odd to have the US Secretary Of State give an endorsement for the re-election of Obama, while she was overseas in Morocco.

    Here’s what happened –

    Hillary’s State Department made demands on the Taliban in their “talks”. The Taliban declined and Hillary warned she’d turn up the heat. The Taliban responded with “Oh yeah?” and proceeded to capture the “optics” by manufacturing this Koran burning incident, and then holding Hillary’s feet to the fire for her to bend to their will, or the rage would continue.

    Hillary’s response? – blame the Republicans evens as, internally at State, she screams and throws things and demands a genius to appear and fix this sh**.

    You know it ‘s true.

    Hitlery is the spokesperson for the relativistic and moral ineptitude of her generation of hippies. By lacking in any moral character, she cannot identify good vs. evil and since she doesn’t ascribe to any religion, one’s as good (or bad) as the next and has an altruistic notion that islam cannot be as evil as people make it out to be, especially conservatives. It’s what she has despised her whole life. I’m sure she had screaming contests with her father and mother about church and all that while she was passing through her teenage years (I refuse to say she was “growing up”).

    So to her it’s all relative in that religion is just a feature of the violent middle-easterners, not the foundation or structure.

    Her naivte’ also shows in her dealings with the middle eastern tribal leaders who are steeped in hatred of the West. We all do it but radical left-wingers especially so in that they believe everyone thinks like they do. “All people are the same” is their mantra and it fails to acknowledge years of indoctrination, background, upbringing, experiences, etc. She lives in that impenetrable shell of arrogance and ignorance. Anything bad, as she first believed when she smoked her first joint, is the responsibility of people trying to “harsh her mellow”, as in conservative parents who believed that you worked hard, made a living and built strong character.

    Well, she’s a “character” alright. She’s what happens when you let hippies have responsibility. She has never worked a day in her life, as is the writ of socialist elites. In his book, “”Unlimited Access” by Gary Aldrich, he says that she was a b*tch. Not his exact words but it comes across that she was a nasty, rude, better-than-you shrill of a woman. And I expect she hasn’t changed.

      I wonder if it ever occurs to this twit that maybe the Taliban’s behavior toward the US is due to the fact they have to listen to some strident bitch (yes, I said it) tell them she was going to turn up the heat.

      I mean, coming from a woman no less, who represents the ‘great Satan’, this must come off as some egregious form of double-jeopardy insult.

      I wish she’d just shut her pie-hole.

    Nothing like a strident American woman with dyed blonde hair, wearing trousers and blue contact lenses shouting into the camera to get them Talibs riled up. BTW, has everyone checked out Hillary’s new image? With the scraped back hair and the no makeup? She’s given up even trying, pretty much. Still, she’s not like other women, never has been. She’s “different”. Maybe its her penis, maybe its something else but she’s just… different.
