Fighters [MC->people who terrorize people are called terrorists] of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) celebrate on vehicles taken from Iraqi security forces, at a street in city of Mosul, June 12, 2014. The militants on Tuesday attacked Beiji refinery which accounts for a little more than a quarter of the country’s entire refining capacity.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to step aside from his country as it gallops furiously toward civil war.
In recent days, Sunni extremist fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria moved within 50 miles of Baghdad, an alarming escalation that, the former Secretary of State told Fox News on Tuesday, the Iraqi politician had only exacerbated. Clinton said al-Maliki showed weak leadership by exhibiting a preference for Iraqi Shi‘ites and purging senior military leaders of the rival religious sect group.
Clinton added that she is “not in favor of any formal relationships or agreements with Iran at this time.”
In a separate appearance at a CNN town hall Tuesday, Clinton aimed more harsh words at al-Maliki, saying that in retrospect the Prime Minister should not have rejected an extended “status-of-forces agreement” with the U.S., which would have kept American troops in the country beyond 2011.
“I think it’s imperative that the government of Iraq, currently led by Maliki, be much more inclusive, much more willing to share power, involve all the different segments of Iraq,” she said on CNN. And I believe strongly that, if Maliki is not the kind of leader who can do that, then the Iraqi people need to think seriously about the kind of leader they need to try to unite Iraqis against what is a terrible, imminent threat from these most extreme terrorists.” time.com
It would be nice if her ladyship (and his lordship obama) would weed their own garden first before pointing fingers on inclusion…. Obama tells his minority to shut up because he says “I won”! Meanwhile I’m called a “domestic terrorist” just because I’m pro-life and support the Constitution..
Maliki must be doing something right for his country otherwise they’d be singing his praises. Meanwhile Maliki’ ex-VP, who was convicted of running terrorist death sqads, is living in Turkey having gained asylum by the leader of the terrorists himself Erdogan, (obama’s ME stand-in). Erdogan who has never met a minority group he likes – ask the Christians, Kurds….
Yo, Hillary don’t you wonder why your book has bombed and your book tour a disaster?
