Hillary Clinton: 0 for 3 on Iraq

As you recall, in 2003 Hillary Clinton endorsed the idea of invading Iraq.  With the clarity of hindsight, that move doesn’t look so wise.

Then in early 2007 she went on record as being against the troop surge President Bush launched to try and stabilize the situation.  That effort had the intended affect.

And of course she supported President Obama’s full withdrawal from Iraq.  We can only guess at how much better things might have been if we’d hammered out a status of forces of agreement to leave a token force behind.

At each and every key decision point, Hillary Clinton was dead wrong.

Perhaps some enterprising reporter can ask her how she managed to be flat-out wrong on all 3 big decisions regarding the biggest foreign policy issue of the past 15 years.
