Is Hillary Clinton NUTS?

Hillary Clinton had reasserted her experience in recent days by mocking Barack Obama's naive approach to foreign policy. When Benazir Bhutto was murdered in Pakistan, she was able to note she had personally met the former Prime Minister, underscoring the argument that we need "adults in charge" in a dangerous world.

Then she goes out and blows it completely with an idiotic and destructive comment like this, via Breitbart.com:

"I'm calling for a full, independent, international investigation," Clinton said in an interview with CNN.

"I think it's critically important that we get answers and really those are due first and foremost to the people of Pakistan," Clinton said.

The former first lady suggested the probe could be along the lines of the international investigation that followed the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri in 2005.

"I don't think the Pakistani government at this time under President (Pervez) Musharraf has any credibility at all. They have disbanded an independent judiciary, they oppressed a free press."

The rest is at the link above. Such a ridiculous statement insults a friendly, sovereign government and fuels the fires of unrest in that volatile country. Hillary is giving aid and comfort to the terrorists by feeding the conspiracy fever which runs high in the Muslim world without much help from abroad. She is destabilizing a government which, despite tactics which we abhor, is the best chance to keep Pakistan's nuclear arsenal out of the hands of the radicals.

Such outrageous remarks should never be spoken by a United States Senator, much less by a major party Presidential candidate. She is unfit to serve in the office she now holds, and certainly unqualified for promotion.

None of those words even modify each other. It's like calling for a "wet, dry, live corpse"

Yes, Hillary is nuts -- her warmongering has proven that.

Steve Crickmore:

Hillary has a tendency to use rather undiplomatic language, considering that by her own estimation, she is so experienced and has met so many world leaders. But in this case the Bhutto assassination, like many assassinations there are so many questions...An official report is now is saying that Bhutto died from skull fracture as result of striking the sun roof and was never shot as was first thought...It doesn't say where all the blood came from?

So, in other words, she would have to "suspend disbelief" to accept that maybe it was Islamic terrorists that would resort to a hail of bullets and a suicide bomber to kill an uppity Muslim woman?

Alan Orfi:

Clinton employs a strategy of sowing the seeds of staged concern over specific events in hopes of claiming "leadership" at a later time. Should it eventually be determined that Musharraff's government is culpable to some degree for the Bhutto assassination, then Clinton will surely lay claim to having "known it all along." She is rarely questioned on all the red herrings, though.

Dave W:

Where the hell is her diplomacy? The dems have been screaming about diplomacy. She doesn't seem to be playing so nice in the sand box.

Oh, i forgot, Musharrif is not a US ally, he's george Bush's ally. There is a HUGE difference! The US has no allies, but George Bush has a few. not that we like to admit that.

Isn't it simply amazing that after going on about diplomacy and getting more allies in the world, two democratic presidential candidates are calling for invasion of pakistan or at least calling a foreign leader's credibility into question? Hillary is right on one thing, we need adults in charge. maybe she should step aside so the adults can handle the real problems...

I think we need "a full, independent, international investigation" on whether she is fit to be president.

Having tea with Bhutto does not make her experienced in dealing with foreign policy matters.

Namedropping by Hillary Clinton does not make her a guru on foreign policy. Senator Biden has much more experience on international matters than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Hillary has a history of "foot in mouth" reactions to events. Remember when she was going to eliminate the electoral college after Algore lost? How's that project coming along Hill?
