Washington-The United States must look past the violence and extremism that has erupted after the "Arab Spring" revolutions and boost support for the region's young democracies to forge long-term security, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday. Clinton, seeking to reinforce the Obama administration's Middle East policy following a wave of anti-American violence and last month's deadly attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya, said Washington cannot be deterred by "the violent acts of a small number of extremists." "We recognize that these transitions are not America's to manage, and certainly not ours to win or lose,"

"But we have to stand with those who are working every day to strengthen democratic institutions, defend universal rights, and drive inclusive economic growth. That will produce more capable partners and more durable security over the long term." Clinton said
Tell that to the four dead Americans.

Her Thighness is reading from a script that's over a year old. We are witnessing the rise of islamic fundementalism which is nothing but a thin veneer for murdering Muslim savagery. Where the hell has this woman been and what the hell is she smoking?
This statement has Huma Abedin written all over it.

The 4 people who were murdered do not even register with her. More violence will just be "ignored" by Hillary Clinton.

You see we the little people are not seeing the Big picture.....

At least she will be gone soon. Hopefully Mitt will clean out the State dept.

Hillary needs to change her hairstylist and her politics ( she looks like a crone).
A strong United States is the only route to peace in the world. Without a strong US, every little two-bit tyrant will think he can attack without retaliation.
Without US leadership, pretty soon the world will be in chaos.

Thanks to Hillary and Zero!!

She is not altogether wrong on each and every issue, but O! O! she is SUCH an annoying person! How sweet and fitting 'twill be when we are no longer hectored and lectured by her and people like her, people who have never done or accomplished a single meritorious thing or distinguished themselves in any way during their whole lives, people who have coasted, been carried, promoted, given a free pass and ridden on the shoulders and coattails of others to get where they are. People who are head over heels in love with themselves and their exalted principles.

There is hope. She cannot live forever, neither in the flesh nor in public life. Not even Jimmy Carter can live forever. The trouble is that it precisely people like these, people of no real substance or accomplishment or wisdom, who are the most tenacious in clinging to the public eye. This is a definite characteristic of Democrats. They never just fade away. They keep right on blabbing and scolding and finger pointing to their very last breath.

If you wanted to start trouble in, say, Benghazi and have it spread around the world, well, you know most of the details--that is how you would go about it.

If you wanted to lose a presidential debate, you would go about it as Obama did at his last debate.

Ditto for the above, except insert "vice-" and Biden in the appropriate places.

If you wanted to really anger Hillary Clinton, you would blame everything surrounding the Benghazi Bungle on State

If you wanted to encourage more attacks on our installations in foreign countries and in the United States, this article explains how you would go about it.

The list can go on, ad nauseum.

Why?

It's not that I'm paranoid, but I think they're out to get us.

P.S. To what Middle Eastern democracies is Clinton referring? Name just one.

Not ours to win or lose?? Just how stupid is that?
We spent 800 million dollars bombing Libya, supposedly freeing the people who are now killing our embassy employees.
In the upside down world of hillary and mr. barack, though, ours is not to win or lose.

Even using the term "democracy" loosely, there sill never be anything that even vaguely resembles democracy in the Middle East. Never.

Sooner or later, we adn the rest of the Free World [what's left of it] will come to the realization that that it's kill or be killed when Islam is involved.

Just look at Old Mother England and what Islam has destroyed in that benighted island.

Canada now has Sharia law as a part of its court system.

I don't know if this nation can survive Islam. In another hundred or so years, we may be living under Islam Rule, given the show of guts by our "leaders."

Christian churches in Dearborn, Michigan can no longer ring the church bells in that town. It's offensive to Islam.

It's coming, folks.

Coming from the same people who ridiculed Bush for middle east democracy dreams.These were fake democratic efforts pushed by Islamists and given a green light by Obama.

There's no reason they couldn't have given Mubarak or Gadaffi 6 months to start election reforms and a more participative government.

I'll bet half the people in these countries wish they had the old way back.

Back when Turkey adopted secularism as it's government style,it could have been a model for the rest of these countries. Too bad Turkey has sold out to the Islamists but they're still moderate compared to the muslim brotherhood,hezbollah and hamas.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but
