In an exclusive interview with ABC News in Baghdad, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., called the situation in Iraq “heartbreaking” and said she doubts Congress and the American people believe the mission here can succeed.
“I don’t know that the American people or the Congress at this point believe this mission can work,” she said. “And in the absence of a commitment that is backed up by actions from the Iraqi government, why should we believe it?”
Clinton spoke with ABC News after meeting with Gen. George Casey and Lt. Gen. Ray Odierno, the top American commanders here. She is one a one-day visit to Iraq as part of congressional delegation that includes Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., and Rep. John McHugh, R-N.Y.
Clearly, Hillary Clinton was making a pointed jab at Dick Cheney, who has well known heart problems. Personally, I am outraged. OUTRAGED! Someone call the NY POST, Red State, the National Review, Dan Riehl, and all the other right wing bullshit artists and tell them it is time to demonstrate our outrage (OUTRAGE!) at these remarks.
