So, Time magazine has some fluff piece where they desperately are trying to make Hillary look like a bad ass, both a military genius and reserved statesmen, and it is blatantly obvious:
Midway through Barack Obama’s first term as president, U.S. officials grew alarmed that Israel might launch a unilateral air strike against Iran’s nuclear program. Iran had snubbed Obama’s outreach after the 2008 election, and rejected an October 2009 international proposal to ship most of its enriched uranium out of the country—stirring pessimism about prospects for a future breakthrough.
“Militarily, I thought we needed to prepare for a possible Israeli attack and Iranian retaliation,” former Defense Secretary Robert Gates writes in his new memoir, Duty. At a January 2010 Oval Office meeting, Gates told Obama “he needed to consider the ramifications of a no-warning Israeli attack,” including whether the U.S. would assist Israel and how it would respond to Iranian retaliation.
Around the same time, senior officials met to discuss ways the U.S. might dissuade Israeli Prime Minister from taking unilateral action. In one such meeting, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised a bracing question, according to two former Obama administration officials: Was it possible that, instead of trying to restrain Israel, the U.S. should instead provide what one of those official described as “a tacit green light to the Israelis to take care of the problem for us”? In other words, instead of begging Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to give diplomacy more time, perhaps it was worth telling him to go proceed with airstrikes.
Get that? Time is desperately trying to make it look that while Obama’s people, all desperately looking for a peaceful solution, because we all know that peace must happen at all costs, Hillary was the only one with the brains and balls to think about the obvious alternative! What a show of genius and strength. She is a true friend of Israel. However, just to make sure nobody can accuse her of being a warmonger, lets add this:
Clinton did not actually endorse the idea. She only raised the notion “as one option to consider,” according to one former official, who adds that it gained no traction inside the administration. Clinton’s current press secretary, Nick Merrill, did not respond to requests for comment this week on this matter.
Double genius! She has her cake and eats it too! Our first female president-to-be was just thinking outside the box. Straddle both sides of that fence. Only problem I have with this narrative is that it smells of massive bullshit, and I am willing to bet money it is made up shit.
No, not just because she is a democrat, but because she already was caught lying, at least twice. First up was here ludicrous story about being fired on by a sniper in Bosnia, a revelation that turned out to be a blatant falsehood. Such a lie should have ended this woman’s career, but because she is a progtard, it actually enhanced it. She then ran for president. I remind you that it was her campaign that started both the rumors about Obama not being a US citizen and that he was associated with radicals, be they muslims or just creeps like reverend White. Of course these days most people forget or ignore these facts and pretend it was the other side that did this. They are after all racists, misogynists, homophobic, sexist, poor robbing, evil conservatives. Billary lost out to Obama, and in a wise move, to keep her from stabbing him in the back, Obama made her Sec State. That’s where the my exhibit B comes from: Benghazi-gate. This is the shit I associate with Hillary Clinton: made up crap and epic failures that cost lives and lead to more made up crap.
So spare me the bullshit propaganda that Hillary is such a genius, a friend of Israel, and a peacenik all wrapped in one, because you have a better chance of making an argument she is the tooth fairy, than that one. When it comes to Iran, or any other such national security issue, Hillary will be just a bad as Obama, if not worse.
