"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
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.

Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is 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.
