There was an exponential increase in arms proliferation and sales to dodgy countries she engaged in as SOS with the Clinton Foundation benefiting with huge donations - quid pro quo?

Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department


As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton also accused some of these countries of failing to marshal a serious and sustained campaign to confront terrorism. In a December 2009 State Department cable published by Wikileaks, Clinton complained of "an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority." She declared that "Qatar's overall level of CT cooperation with the U.S. is considered the worst in the region." She said the Kuwaiti government was "less inclined to take action against Kuwait-based financiers and facilitators plotting attacks." She noted that "UAE-based donors have provided financial support to a variety of terrorist groups." All of these countries donated to the Clinton Foundation and received increased weapons export authorizations from the Clinton-run State Department...

In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered between $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family, according to foundation and State Department records.

Or did you forget the sarcasm tag??

That fuck Cheney mislead congress. He fed false info to reporters and then used their reports as if they were independent confirmation of his info.

It's hard to take some of you seriously on this stuff.

Cheney would have re invaded Iraq by now.

And Syria.



Cheney happily helped out a CIA agent.

He feed false intel to reporters then used their reports as if they were separate confirmation of his fake info.

Off the top of my head.

Cheney favors a massive Body Count as part of our standard foreign policy.

Trumped up intelligence to justify the body count.

and contrary to what you read on DU

Hillary has never been in favor of using overwhelming ground forces to invade the Middle East.

hillary is human.

having the brain of a creature who emerged from putrid, bubbling green goo has GOT to affect decision making.

but to your question, i think the evil one went to great lengths to tie 911 to saddam and the bullshit about the yellow cake. he would have done ANYTHING to get into iraq because of his hard on for saddam.

hillary made her decision for different reasons.

unfortunately, it was the same decision, but motive matters. his was pure evil. hers was not imo, although i think it was politicaly self serving.
