NEW YORK — Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday she's proud to have been part of an administration that "banned illegal renditions and brutal interrogations" and said the U.S. should never be involved in torture anywhere in the world.
Clinton spoke about the importance of the nation acting in accordance with its values after receiving an award from The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights at a gala in New York.
Clinton also addressed the recent protests that have raged across the country, and drew links between violence at home and abroad.
She declared, "yes, black lives matter," a mantra of demonstrators around the country who have been protesting recent grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers involved in the deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York.
Clinton denounces torture, says black lives matter
I love her originality!
She voted for the Iraq invasion and took money to sit on the board of that rotten WalMart which it appears virtually enslaves its employees, and she worked for the Administration that also droned almost 300 innocent children to death. I wonder why she didn't address them.
