Hillary Clinton: Europe must lead on plane react
Politico ^ | 7/17/14 | MAGGIE HABERMAN

Posted on 07/17/2014 7:16:54 PM PDT by SJackson

Hillary Clinton says there’s “growing awareness” that Malaysia Airlines passenger plane was probably shot down by Russian insurgents — but argued that European leaders must “take the lead” on any action if that proves to be the case.

Clinton made the comments about the doomed plane in a wide-ranging interview with TV host Charlie Rose set to air Thursday night. Portions of the taped interview were released ahead of airtime.

“The questions I’d be asking is, No. 1, ‘Who could have shot it down? Who had the equipment?’” she said. “It’s obviously an antiaircraft missile.”

The former secretary of state, who’s pondering a second run for the presidency in 2016, said it takes some advance planning to down a jetliner from the height it would have been traveling at over that part of Ukraine.

“There does seem to be some growing awareness that it probably had to be Russian insurgents,” Clinton said. “Now, how we determine that will require some forensics, but then if there is evidence pointing in that direction, the equipment had to have come from Russia. What more the Russians may or may not have done, we don’t know.”

She's got a bigger behind to lead from than our President. Maybe not his wife.

The questions I’d be asking is, No. 1, ‘Who could have shot it down? Who had the equipment?

Da*n, who would have thought of that?

There's the kind of leadership the democrats offer. They are college agitators totally out of their depth in the real world.

God help us, the GOP is only marginally better these days, as owned as they are by big business interests.

What business is this of Slick Willie’s wife? She isn’t anybody. Right now she’s nothing but another lowly, two-bit ‘RAT politician. Who cares what she thinks? The last time she opened her big mouth, four Americans were murdered.

Well, we know that this administration will not get involved. We all remember that obama told Romney that he was living in the 80’s and that Russia was not a threat.

Let her keep talking and putting her foot in her mouth. Liars have a hard time keeping their lies in order without lying even more. Oh the web we weave when we practice to deceive.

If she wants Europe to lead then why does the disgraced and failed former Secretary of State open her mouth?

In other words, the USA should NOT take the lead.

Obama will sure be relieved to hear that.

Europe takes lead on Archduke Ferdinand - WWI

Europe ignores Sudentenland annexation, but takes lead on invasion of Poland - WWII

Guess who had to save the day both times. For someone who wrote a book called Living History, she doesn't seem to know it.

I nominate Germany to lead the charge from the front.

After all, Germany has lot’s of experience and solid historical track record of getting things done in Eastern Europe

Who is this Hillary Clinton Person?
Does she hold Elected Office?

Oh that's right, she is one of those “special” Private Citizens who should be listened to without ridicule, unlike Former Governor Sarah Palin.

Of course Sarah Palin has been on the right side of most issues she has commented on, unlike this Hillary Clinton Person.

Why does anyone care what Hillary has to say? MSM should probably ask Monica what she thinks as well, after all they shared the same brain.

When Hillary was in the White House, you know, the two terms she served with her husband, she and her man used to order up videos of Ronald Reagan giving speeches, you know to make Slick embue some sort of "presidentiality."

And none of it rubbed off on her.

If Hillary Clinton says is was the Separatists (remember when the USA and Hillary supported the Separatists in Libya and Syria) then it was most likely the Kiev junta that did the deed to allow the US/NATO to become more openly involved in the civil war, just like what happened in Libya and Syria.

Imus actually had to tell them to ‘oh shy it off!’ during a clip of her today and he claims to ‘lover to death’

“So Europeans have to be the ones to take the lead on this,” she said. “It was a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over European territory. There should be outrage in European capitals.”

It was an ML flight. Using Hillary's logic, why shouldn't Asia take the lead?

Hillary always says the exact opposite of what she really means. You might recall there was an incident with a US diplomat (Victoria Nuland) screaming and swearing about who cares what the Europeans think with regards to the Ukraine. She worked for the US Department of State. Hillary’s old outfit. Which of course explains how the situation over there got so messed up in the first place.

Watching the apologists on Saturday Today talking down what the US can do about this. The European issue meme has went out far and wide. I think not so much because they believe it or even because it is true but to cover for Mr. Paper A__hole.
