While Hillary Brags About State Dept. “Accomplishments,” The World Burns
Hillary Clinton just wrapped up an event in Boulder, Colorado this afternoon. During her speech, Clinton bragged about her “accomplishments” as Secretary of State. Indeed, Clinton was the architect of President Obama’s foreign policy—a policy that 54 percent of Americans disapprove of according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Clinton waxed poetically about her role in bringing a Chinese dissident to the U.S.—a story, by the way, the dissident disputes—and brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.
Left unmentioned: her embarrassing “Russian Reset,” the Libyan war she advocated for and which left a vacuum for terrorists to move into the country, and referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as “a reformer.”
