Ireland, Sinbad, Chelsea, and Hillary: The Clinton ‘Foreign Policy’ Experience

From Taylor’s Place, Tiburones:

Regarding shedding light on Hill’s claim to experience, they will lose. Bill Bennett on his talk show Thursday said that Hill does have some claim to experience from being in the White House. He said that she was a part of some of those meetings and that due to her obvious love of policy, she probably had some input. CNN’s piece was quite flattering to Hill as they showed her making her speech in China about women’s rights and showed her in the tribal areas of Serbia etc. It will only highlight all of the places where she has been (many war torn)…

From the Telegraph:

Hillary Clinton had no direct role in bringing peace to Northern Ireland and is a “wee bit silly” for exaggerating the part she played, according to Lord Trimble of Lisnagarvey, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of the province.

As to the claims about Bosnia and Serbia and Macedonia? Well…

The question is whether Clinton personally negotiated the deal with the Macedonian government–or U.S. diplomats used her forthcoming visit as an additional incentive to persuade the Macedonian authorities to re-open the border. The sequence of events–first the border reopening, followed by Clinton’s visit to the camps and her meeting with Macedonian government leaders–points to the second scenario.

And, err, tribal areas of Serbia? A bit denigrating, isn’t it? That harrowing visit that was so scary? Yeah, one word: Sinbad

And the China speech on human rights? What were they going to do, lock her up? It’s not like she was going to praise a brutal dictatorship…unlike her husband, who praises brutal thugs in exchange for favors.

Okay, that’s it. I’m tired. Time for an MMORPG break.
