    Did Hillary say anything about "engaging in diplomacy and making nice" with ISIS?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Well, she generically refers to our "enemies" in her "Smart Power" speech. ISIS, I think, qualifies as an enemy. If she meant to exclude particular enemies or enemies that met certain criteria she could have done that, but I see no evidence that she has. I mean, it would be helpful to know what criteria she would use to determine which enemies need to be understood and empathized with and which ones you can dispense the niceties with and just dispatch using missiles and bombs.
