Hillary’s Dismal Record at State
The media spin is that she has been an excellent Secretary of State. But it’s just spin.
Look at the record:
???????Chavez now controls Argentina, Bolivia, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Ecuador as well as Venezuela. He is a big influence in Brazil. He is providing a base for Iran to move into the hemisphere.
??Russia has become more repressive and aggressive. Democracy advocates are more subject to arrest and torture and nothing has come of the “reset” except more appeasement.
??The Ukraine has drifted closer to Russia and further away from the West.
–Iran is much closer to having the bomb and likely using it against Israel
??We’ve lost Egypt and Islamist power is sweeping the Arab world. The singular achievement of American Middle Eastern diplomacy over the past fifty years, the Camp David Accords, are being undone as we speak.
??North Korea, ever more brazen, has become a nuclear power and now has put a satellite into orbit.
–China still weakens its currency making our products too expensive there and their goods cheaper here at home. And it launches cyber attacks against institutions like the New York Times with total impunity.
??The Islamist offensive in sub-Sahara Africa gains momentum.
??Afghanistan is no closer to putting down the Taliban, is still one of the most corrupt of the world’s governments, and Pakistan’s collaboration with al Qaida grows more and more evident.
And then there’s Benghazi. The cover-up — dressing the terrorist attack up as a demonstration over a movie gone wrong — disgraces her tenure. It was a transparent attempt to sweep an issue under the rug to help Obama get re-elected.
The press corps that follows Hillary around the world is unanimous in praising her. They are her captives. Covering Hillary is their full time assignment. If they annoy her, they are frozen out on the plane and can’t do their jobs. Sycophancy alone is tolerated.
Has Hillary been a good Secretary of State? Look at the record.
