Former US secretary of state and potential presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton issued a staunch defense of Israel over its conduct of the war against Hamas, placed full ultimate responsibility on Hamas for the deaths of children and other innocent people, and defended Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s insistence on maintaining security control in the West Bank in the next few years.

In an interview published Sunday by Jeffrey Goldberg for The Atlantic, she also urged an “overarching” US strategy to confront Islamic terrorism, equating this struggle to the one the US waged against communism.

She spoke of the “failure” that arose from the Obama administration’s decision not to aid the initial uprising against Syria’s President Bashar Assad, which created a vacuum now filled by jihadists.

And overall, she indicated that she considered President Barack Obama’s approach to foreign policy to be too cautious. Responding to Obama’s self-described foreign policy doctrine of: “Don’t do stupid shit,” Clinton, who served as his top diplomat for four years between 2009 and 2013, said: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”

Goldberg judged that Clinton indicated that she does intend to run for the presidency when, after he said to her that he felt the US, on balance, has done a good job of advancing the cause of freedom, she responded: “That’s how I feel! Maybe this is old-fashioned… I’m about to find out, in more ways than one.”

On the current conflict against Hamas in Gaza, Clinton said she was “not surprised that Hamas provoked another attack.”

Asked if the Israeli response was disproportionate, she replied: “Israel was attacked by rockets from Gaza. Israel has a right to defend itself. The steps Hamas has taken to embed rockets and command-and-control facilities and tunnel entrances in civilian areas, this makes a response by Israel difficult. Of course Israel, just like the United States, or any other democratic country, should do everything they can possibly do to limit civilian casualties. We see this enormous international reaction against Israel. This reaction is uncalled for and unfair.”

Definitely posturing.

This bitch will say anything to get elected she is a Progressive from head to toe and will do nothing but lie and point fingers at everyone to save her own ASS just like Obama there both Bitches

Agreed

You never know what Hillary is going to do, she lies as much as Dictator Obama. 

totally agree with you

And unfortunately, she is more convincing.

America has lost it's war on communism, it now lives in our white House. so much for that fight. Thanks god Obama and his administration is as incompetent at doing communism as they are at government our country.

 So where is the UN? Why have they not condemned Hamas for firing rockets from UN run schools and hospitals? I'm not surprised that Obama expects Israel to stop their bombing in  Gaza. Seems he wants people who play by the rules to obey the rules while those who ignore the rules get a pass.

Miss Piggy, I mean Hilary Clinton the poster woman for professional career politician is a lying sociopath. She touted her Jewishness when she ran for N.Y. Senator. She clapped her hands at what she and obama dubbed the Arab Spring. She was not honest about Chris Stevens and the Benghazi attack. She is an Awful Awful dangerous politician for American, freedom and liberty seeking Americans. Vindictive and dishonest woman. Bad news for our country.

I never thought that I would ever agree with Killery on anything, but I fully agree with her that Israel has the right to defend its people from soulless killers lobbing rockets into their cities. 

Israel has taken great measures, often to the detriment of their own forces, to limit civilian casualties.  It is nearly impossible when Hamas stocks targets with women and children in order to make Israel appear to not care about civilians.

People who have a conscience, morals and ethics cannot understand those who do not possess these attributes.  Hamas is comprised of cold-blooded Mudslime killers who want to eradicate all other religions from earth.  They would just as soon behead you as to speak to you.

If Hillary is defending Israel, it means she's a serious candidate in 2016.  I wonder if anyone else remembers the anti-Semitic rant she went on while she was First Lady? What a phony! She'll say anything and support anyone who in some way advances her position or goals.

Her panties are really on fire now!

Could be... but for a woman! She has been reported to have several Lesbian relationships... Maybe Bill had good excuse?

One relationship was out in the open and they would swim together in our American pool!.. Well, maybe Bill was not that much of a man?

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
