    Private meetings now becoming public when politically convenient. Hmm. Kinda reminds you of rats fleeing a sinking ship, doesn't it?

    Which is totally believable.

    Hillary today called Obama to say that what she said didn't have the intention of criticizing him or his policies.

    Except that... she clearly did have that intention.

    Clinton making amends with Obama after critique

    I guess she needed to do that, her and Bill will be joining the Obama's at Martha's Vineyard in a few days. And yes, of course she's running from Obama like the republicans ran from Bush. This is what politicians DO!!! That's why we don't need anymore of them as president.

    Re: Hillary Clinton distances herself from Obama's foreign policy

    For those who are interested, George Washington University Political Science and International Affairs Professor Marc Lynch wrote a piece in The Washington Post that debunks the notion that aiding the Free Syrian Army would have prevented the rise of ISIS. In part, he explained:

    Finally, the idea that more U.S. support for the FSA would have prevented the emergence of the Islamic State isnít even remotely plausible. The open battlefield and nature of the struggle ensured that jihadists would find Syriaís war appealing. The Islamic State recovered steam inside of Iraq as part of a broad Sunni insurgency driven by Prime Minister Nouri al-Malikiís bloody, ham-fisted crackdowns in Hawija and Fallujah, and more broadly because of the disaffection of key Sunni actors over Malikiís sectarian authoritarianism. It is difficult to see how this would have been affected in the slightest by a U.S.-backed FSA (or, for that matter, by a residual U.S. military presence in Iraq, but thatís another debate for another day). There is certainly no reason to believe that the Islamic State and other extremist groups would have stayed away from such an ideal zone for jihad simply because Western-backed groups had additional guns and money.
