We understand that former Secretary Clinton said this about ISIS:
Clinton said she backs President Barack Obama’s strategy of increasing support for Iraqi forces without sending U.S. combat troops to fight the terrorists.
“I do not think it would be smart, effective or appropriate for us to put ground (combat) troops into Iraq. ... There are specific roles that our military is playing and can successfully play in better focusing the Iraqis themselves on what they have to do because, eventually, this will be won or lost by the people in the region.
“They are going to have to decide. Do they want to be oppressed and subjected by this regime of terrorism and give up their right to govern themselves to this group?”
She also once said that Saddam Hussein had connections to al-Qaeda and was busy redeveloping WMD.
We remind you that she also said 45 times that she supported the free trade deal that she's now evasive about.
She told Secretary Gates that her opposition to the surge was all about Senator Obama challenging her in the Democrat primary.
We have the right to ask a few questions:
1) How can we believe anything that this lady says?
2) How can she rule out ground forces at this stage of the game? She would be asked about President Obama's decision to remove troops in 2011. Did she support that decision?
Hillary Clinton may win the 2016 election. However, I cannot remember a candidate with less conviction or credibility than this woman. She is your classic "let me tell people what they want to hear" candidate, or exactly the wrong person at a time when we need the opposite in the White House.
