The gloves are off as ex-Sec-o-State HILLARY CLINTON denounces former boss Pres. OBAMA for being a bonehead.
In a new interview with The Atlantic Hillary Clinton lambasted Obama’s foreign policy saying his lackof a clear strategy for the Middle East spawned the current ISIS crisis in Iraq.
“Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle,” charged Clinton.
Reputedly, Obama staffers’ description of the administration’s foreign policy had been “Don’t do stupid sh*-t”.
Prepping for a potential run at the Presidency, Hillary distanced herself from her ex-boss and THAT philosophy.
She also slammed the administration’s “failure” to arm Syrian rebels in the early days of their uprising— a policy she claims she tried to strong arm Obama to change.
“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad — there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle — the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton said.
During Obama’s first term, Clinton backed a more aggressive posture to help Syrian rebels. The administration held back airstrikes and avoided intervention in the conflict fearing that jihadist-terror groups make gain a stronghold.
Now, the Obama administration was mobilizing to take on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which has seized a huge swath of terrain in Syria and Iraq threatening United States interests.
Clinton’s slam coincides with Obama’s popularity having bottomed at 40 percent and his foreign policy is under fire from both Dems and GOP-ers as multiple overseas crises threaten to engulf the world in a conflagration of biblical proportions.
