|SOS Hillary Clinton|
Hillary Clinton's foreign policy failures during her tenure as Secretary of State (SOS) from 2009 to 2016 presented many opportunities for America to better the world. She worked diligently to get nearly every one of those opportunities exactly wrong.
She told the world how proud she was for flying nearly one million miles during her globe-trekking term. If she was ordered to makes things worse on purpose, she could not have done a better job at being a monumental failure.
The Russian Reset Debacle
Tensions grew between the U.S. and Russia when they invaded Georgia in 2008. President George W. Bush sent warships to help Georgia stabilized the Black Sea. He also assisted them with the transfer of Georgian troops to head home from Iraq to prepare for the worst.
Her very first task was to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergi Lavrov in Geneva in March of 2009. The ate like ravenous raccoon's, drank like Kennedys on Saint Patrick's Day, and then got their vogue on with the infamous 'reset' button. The problem, the word "reset" was misspelled and translated to 'overcharge'. Apparently, she did not have a Russian spell-check app.
Six months after their rendezvous, America announced that the missile defense system that was planned to be assembled in Eastern Europe, Poland, and the Czech Republic, was canceled. This shield would have lulled Russia's aggression and Crimea would probably be home to Ukraine today.
|Four Americans Slaughtered In Benghazi, Libya|
Clinton's foreign policy failures know no boundaries. The former SOS's self-effacement tour continued with the preventable slaughter of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, was her greatest failure. Her so called 'friend', Ambassador Christopher Stevens had warned her of poor security and the rise of tensions on at least three occasions. Not only did his requests fall on deaf ears, his security was lessened.
September 11, 2012, was the date in history of the ominous attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi. To date; not only was Hillary not held accountable, not one of her staffers have been disciplined.
She cleared them from all culpability, and her successor – John Kerry – cleared her of any wrongdoing. In fact, he proclaimed that there were no errors made in the security decisions. It is highly probable the four decedent Americans would contradict this finding.
She told her countrymen and women that this was “A spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video” was the talking point implicitly behest to Americans for two weeks. President Obama echoed this blatant lie and sent his U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations to repeat this on every major Sunday talk show.
While testifying to Congress, she interrupted Senator Johnson and said this in a fit of rage, “With all due respect, the fact is we had 4 dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”
Well, Mrs. Clinton, for the decedent U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors and former military men Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty, it does make a difference. Learning why four American heroes died on foreign lands makes all the difference in the world.
The Withdrawal From Iraq
As a Senator for New York, she voted for the war in Iraq. This was emphatically the worst foreign policy mistake in the last four decades. This cost Iraq their nation and thousands of American lives were lost.
Hillary then boasted how she and President Obama ended the war in Iraq and withdrew all American troops out of the rogue country. They both claim that they could not come to a Status of Forces Agreement, so they had to leave.
This claim was blasphemous. The U.S. invaded Iraq, occupied Iraq with upwards of 50,000 troops, and ousted the nation's leader without permission. Nevertheless, America cut-and-run, which allowed ISIS to claim one-third of the country while slaughtering any women, children, and men that did not support them.
ISIS was not created because of the Iraq war. They were established in 1998 and they remained harmless until they saw the vacuous land of Iraq. The U.S. watched ISIS cross the desert into Iraq via satellite. The observer in chief did nothing.
Hillary Clinton's Foreign Policy Failures
When Hillary was asked to comment on her greatest accomplishment as SOS, she replied, “My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I’m glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”
Her foreign policy failures includes the Arab Spring, Syria, India, Pakistan, Iran, the “pivot in Asia, failure to recognize China's horrific human rights problem, she erased 30,000 emails that she had hidden from The Freedom of Information Act, and the Middle East all played out at the hands of Hillary Clinton. Now, the U.S. and Israel have the worst relationship than ever before. Should anyone expect any different from her as Commander in Chief? No. It will be four more years of Barack Obama.
