Skip to comments.Nobel winner: Hillary Clinton's 'silly' Irish peace claims
Posted on 03/08/2008 6:39:42 AM PST by fightinJAG
Hillary Clinton had no direct role in bringing peace to Northern Ireland and is a "wee bit silly" for exaggerating the part she played, according to Lord Trimble of Lisnagarvey, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and former First Minister of the province.
Mrs Clinton has made Northern Ireland key to her claims of having extensive foreign policy experience, which helped her defeat Barack Obama in Ohio and Texas on Tuesday after she presented herself as being ready to tackle foreign policy crises at 3am.
"I helped to bring peace to Northern Ireland," she told CNN on Wednesday. But negotiators from the parties that helped broker the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 told The Daily Telegraph that her role was peripheral and that she played no part in the gruelling political talks over the years.
There is no record of a meeting at Belfast City Hall, though Mrs Clinton attended a ceremony there when her husband turned on the Christmas tree lights in November 1995. The former First Lady appears to be referring a 50-minute event the same day, arranged by the US Consulate, the same day at the Lamp Lighter Café on the citys Ormeau Road.
The "Belfast Telegraph" reported the next day that the café meeting was crammed with reporters, cameramen and Secret Service agents. Conversation "seemed a little bit stilted, a little prepared at times" and Mrs Clinton admired a stainless steel tea pot, which was duly given to her, for keeping the brew "so nice and hot".

HAAAA! This is fun to watch. Seems the Junk Media isn’t quite sure who to go after Hillary or Barak.
Steven King, a negotiator with Lord Trimbles Ulster Unionist Party, argued that Mrs Clinton might even have helped delay the chances of peace. "She was invited along to some pre-arranged meetings but I dont think she exactly brought anybody together that hadnt been brought together already," he said. Mrs Clinton was "a cheerleader for the Irish republican side of the argument", he added.
"She really lost all credibility when on Bill Clintons last visit to Northern Ireland [in December 2000] when she hugged and kissed [Sinn Fein leaders] Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness."
OMG!! She LIED??????? Say it ain't so!!
She carries her PADDED Resume on her hips!!
But she did get a teapot out of it.
Her version of the Nobel Peace Prize....a TEAPOT!
Maybe she can sing “Danny boy...”
- Wanted to be an astronaut, but NASA told her they didnt take Girls
- Named after Sir Edmond Hillary.
- Negotiated Peace for Ireland.
Lord Trimblep - Get over it. She is a pathological liar, just like her husband. However we understand your pain. Now you know our problem.
-Is still married to his a-holiness WJC.
LOL! Her claims to her own name’s origin are even a lie.
Run Hillaryous Run! (you serial anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-life LIAR!)
I really can’t figure who is/was worse...her or jf’n kerry.
They both have such bloated exxagerated delusions of grandeur!!
Who needs to attack them when all you need do is repeat the lies.
Not one of those lies will cause her to lose any votes from her kool-aid-drinking supporters. Lying has become an art form in Demoncrat Party and the average Demoncrat voter just doesn’t pay any attention or care.
Next thing you know her inevitableness will be taking credit for inventing the internet or letting it be known that her affair with Tipper was the basis for Love Story. Al Gore please call your office!
You do realize it's a well known concept that you can lose by winning?
It will be a Pyrrhic victory if the supposedly conservative party elects someone who supports the leftist agenda through a phony 'bipartisanship' philosophy.
Stack up her lies next to Barack’s lies and she outlies him by about 10,000 to 0.
Was this before Hillary wanted to adopt a child, or when she tried to enlist on the Marines?
Or was this when she was in the kitchen baking cookies, but not standing by her man like Tammy Wynette?
How does this woman ever find the time? /s/
I don’t know how those Rose Law Firm files ended up in my possession.
Bill’s infidelity is a creation of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.
I don’t know who hired Craig Livingstone.
I had nothing to do with the firing of Billy Dale and the rest of the White House travel office.
Vince Foster committed suicide.
That ain’t padding! That’s her claim to blackness, her Ghetto Bootie!
I knew this was going to come back and bite her on her ample backside....
Hillary’s been nipping a wee bit o’ the liarish...
“I dont want to rain on the thing for her but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player.”
There’s a ready made soundbite for ya!
Maybe the teapot thing was where she got the idea she could make off with the silver and tableware.
... and Madeline Albright probably got a brooch out of the deal.
