More on Hillary Clinton's differences with Obama over Syria.

August 21, 2014

The Progressive news site, Newsvandal.com, posted an article recently titled:
"Why Wolfowitz Declared Victory In Iraq",

About halfway through the article about Wolfowitz, there are a few paragraphs about Hillary Clinton under the heading "Hillary Clinton's Protests"

"Since Obama didn't go as far as Hillary now says she wanted to go in smashing Syria, it's even more likely that she played a significant role sucking two more secular regimes down the jihadist rabbit hole, Muammar Gaddafi's Libya and Bashar al-Assad's Syria (although "regime change" has come up a little short in Damascus).
True enough, some Syrian rebels were only helped covertly through her State Department's Conflict Bureau (and the CIA) and, although never officially linked to the U.S., through Libyan weapons transfered to the fight against Assad, another 'Hitler du jour', reportedly at a little-known port at a place called Benghazi.

But now there is little doubt Clinton was present at the creation of yet more reason for Muslim radicals to organize and arm themselves against U.S. aims, allies and proxies - from drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan to Muslim persecution after the 'foreign policy success' of Myanmar."
