So much for Hillary trying to distinguish herself from Obama on foreign policy.
Hillary is just being true to her roots and Code Pink donations from Hamas supporters are too tempting to pass up for either Obama or Hillary.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has expressed support for President Barack Obama’s objection to imposing new sanctions on Iran, Reuters reports.
Clinton has reportedly urged Congress to resist imposing new sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, saying that “this is the time” to give diplomacy a chance to work.
That would be the “diplomacy” under which Iranian officials threaten to attack the United States and claim that the agreement doesn’t force them to dismantle anything and will allow them to go nuclear any time that they feel like it… which Obama Inc. pretends that they didn’t say anything.
Clinton, who leads the pack among potential Democratic presidential contenders for 2016, said in a January 26 letter to Democratic Senator Carl Levin, “Now that serious negotiations are finally under way, we should do everything we can to test whether they can advance a permanent solution.”
One might even say a final solution.
So far this permanent solution consists of letting up on sanctions while hoping that Iran decides not to go nuclear.
A new sanctions bill has been gaining momentum in recent weeks and, 59 of the 100 U.S. senators, including 16 of Obama’s fellow Democrats, signed on as co-sponsors to it. The bill that would impose new restrictions on Iran if talks on a permanent deal falter.
Obama, who has waged an aggressive campaign to convince lawmakers to postpone passing new sanctions on Iran, has declared that he will veto any new sanctions and repeated this threat during his State of the Union speech last week.
At least he can get tough on Americans. Too bad he can’t get tough on America’s enemies.
