She cares so much we still have no idea why she and Obama left four Americans to die in Benghazi without lifting a finger to help them.
Hillary Clinton on Monday defended President Obama’s decision to swap five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl over the weekend.
At an event she headlined in a Denver, Colo. suburb, the moderator asked Clinton to react to the deal.
“This young man, whatever the circumstances, was an American citizen — is an American citizen — was serving in our military,” Clinton said, according to the Associated Press. “The idea that you really care for your own citizens and particularly those in uniform, I think is a very noble one.”
Clinton didn’t explicitly say she would have pursued the same exchange, but said she doesn’t believe in “second guessing” people who have to make difficult decisions.
She doesn’t believe in second guessing? Really?
The former secretary of State said she understood the debate over whether it was smart to release top Taliban prisoners in exchange for Bergdahl, but noted that his life was in danger.
“You don’t want to see these five prisoners go back to combat. There’s a lot that you don’t want to have happen. On the other hand you also don’t want an American citizen, if you can avoid it, especially a solider, to die in captivity,” Clinton said. “I think we have a long way to go before we really know how this is going to play out.”
It’s going to play out all over your 2016 hopes, sister.
