Editorial: She won't own her mistakes but she thinks she can buy the White House

Thursday, War Monger Hillary Clinton gave a foreign policy speech calling for war, war and more war.

Her vote in favor of the Iraq War in 2002, she insists, was a 'mistake.'

Apparently, it's a mistake she's learned nothing from as evidenced by Thursday's words.

But any mistake, other than her never explored (by her) 2002 vote, is never acknowledged.

  (Illustration is Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts from January, 2006.)

In the speech Thursday, she insisted:

Now, we’ve been in a similar place before in Iraq. In the first Sunni awakening in 2007, we were able to provide sufficient support and assurances to the Sunni tribes to persuade them to join us in rooting out Al Qaida. Unfortunately, under Prime Minister Maliki’s rule, those tribes were betrayed and forgotten. So the task of bringing Sunnis off the sidelines into this new fight will be considerably more difficult. But nonetheless, we need to lay the foundation for a second Sunni awakening.

Yes, the Sahwa (also known as Awakenings and Sons of Iraq and Daughter of Iraq) were betrayed by Nouri al-Maliki.

And this betrayal was well documented before the 2010 elections.

And before the eight month political stalemate that followed the elections as loser Nouri al-Maliki refused to step down.

And before the The Erbil Agreement ended the stalemate.

Remember that?

Hillary hopes you don't.

November 10, 2010, the Erbil Agreement is signed.  November 11, 2010, the Iraqi Parliament has their first real session in over eight months and finally declares a president, a Speaker of Parliament and Nouri as prime minister-designate -- all the things that were supposed to happen in April of 2010 but didn't.

Nouri lost the election.

Hillary's right to call out Nouri.

She forgets to call out herself, Barack Obama and others for the US government brokering the Erbil Agreement that gave Nouri a second term after the voters said "no."

That's right, the US government stole that election.

When Hillary was US Secretary of State.

And she doesn't want to own up to that.

She won't own any of her mistakes.

But she just knows Big Money can buy the White House for her.

Sad thing is, she's probably right.
