    In remarks being reported throughout the Arab world Tuesday morning, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton blasted the Bush administration as a threat to peace in the Middle East, going so far as to accuse the President Bush of endangering the lives of U.S. troops. Sen. Clinton delivered the unprecedented attack in an interview with the London-based Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat on Monday, with newspapers from Tehran to Islamabad picking up her harsh words almost immediately. Typical was the coverage by Tehran's news agency Mehr, which quoted Clinton as saying that "the U.S. is trapped in the quagmire of Iraq." "Referring...

    Last Tuesday, we pointed out comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton to an Arab newspaper, blasting the Bush administration. She said of the Bush administration: "Their stubbornness and arrogance is breathtaking. And, as a result, we continue to go down a path that I think is fraught with horrible dangers, especially for the young men and women serving in Iraq, but also for Iraqis, for the stability of the region." Her complaints were published by Arab newspapers and repeated across the Middle East. I reminded the senator that she and other public figures have to be extremely careful about what...

    Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- New York Senator Hillary Clinton said the U.S. should use the opportunity created by the capture of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to increase the involvement of the United Nations and NATO in Iraq's reconstruction. Clinton, a Democrat, called for the U.S. to form an Iraqi reconstruction and stabilization authority -- including the UN and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization -- to oversee the planned changeover next July to a transitional government from U.S. control. Clinton said the handoff, coupled with the rotation of U.S. troops in Iraq at that time, may increase attacks by insurgents...

    Even outraged leaders within its ranks say that the Democratic Party has been playing with treason in an attempt to destroy the nation´s wartime Republican president. "Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage morale and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled or hanged" - that's what President Abraham Lincoln said during the War Between the States. While none have suggested such extreme measures in the midst of the war on terrorism, Lincoln's approach illustrates the deadly seriousness of political responsibility in wartime and draws a fine line between legitimate political dissent and aiding...

    Having studied the Clintons up-close and personal, I have long since concluded that their politics are not the ideals of Liberals, nor are they the dreams of the naive. Instead, they matured from the radical New Left into the hateful “Hard-Left.” Nothing I have discovered has discouraged me from concluding that Hillary Clinton and her sometimes brilliant, sometimes useful-dupe husband are less than dedicated Marxists. Her mentor was Saul D.

    To listen to the more demented segments of the media and the Democrats, President Bush’s Thanksgiving day visit to the troops in Baghdad was a cynical "stunt." However, Hillary Clinton’s visit to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan was an act of the “compassion” for which the woman the American Spectator’s Bob Tyrrell used to call "Bruno," is so famous. To accept that notion, one has to overlook the reaction of the troops to the two visits, but then overlooking inconvenient facts is one of the things our super-liberal media does best. When George Bush strode into that gigantic mess hall,...

How was Bush's trip just a "great PR stunt" (using Iraq "as his stage") and Hillary Clinton's trip not just a less-great PR stunt using Iraq as her stage? Both politicians met with Iraqis as well as American troops. Both discussed substance. The difference is that Bush has a central role in the actual decision-making structure while...

Clinton, who visited U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan over the Thanksgiving holiday, said there was not the "right mix of troops" to get the job done. "We need more MPs (military police), we need more intelligence, we need more civil affairs, we need a bigger presence (in Iraq)," the Democratic New York senator and former first lady told NBC's "Today" show.

    In a just-completed interview on The Today Show, Hillary Clinton, back from her trip to Iraq and Afghanistan, hewed to a very clear strategy: praise the troops while bashing President Bush. Clinton was aided and abetted by her chief media sycophant, Katie Couric. Try to imagine what an appropriate opening question would have been. Perhaps the neutral "how would you describe the situation in Iraq?" Or if someone wanted to be friendly to the Bush administration, "is there good news in Iraq that is going unreported?" Instead, Couric helpfully put the worst spin on things, asking "How bad is it...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Joseph Lieberman defended Sen. Hillary Clinton on Sunday, after she made politically toxic comments predicting possible U.S. failure in Iraq during what was supposed to be a morale-boosting visit to the troops on Friday. Asked if Sen. Clinton was wrong to voice such a pessimistic sentiment from the war zone, Sen. Lieberman told "Fox News Sunday," "In the most technical sense that we're in a war now in which, in the last month, we have lost more American soldiers than we have in any other month since the actual war began . . . in a...

    WASHINGTON - Arriving in Baghdad hours after President Bush's star turn, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) said yesterday the troops were happy to meet her, too. "It's a positive for the commander-in-chief to visit troops in the field," Clinton said, yet "the troops [also] seemed to appreciate seeing myself" and Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) on their joint trip to Iraq and Afghanistan. Clinton and Reed, both members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, quickly turned from faintly praising Bush for his surprise Thanksgiving drop-in at Baghdad's airport to ripping his handling of the Iraq war and the transition to democracy. In...

    Now, let's talk about the president, the trip to Iraq, and let me give you my analysis of this thing, and we'll get into the nuts and bolts and the details of it. The president's Thanksgiving. It was a morale booster for the military. It was shock and awe for liberals and the media. I mean, we kept hearing about Shock and Awe on the opening night of the Iraq war. Well, shock and awe finally happened on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, Eastern time, when the press aboard Air Force One was able to let loose with what they knew, and...

    LEFTOVERSWhile President George W. Bush was embraced warmly by the more than 600 troops he served dinner to in Baghdad on Thanksgiving, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton didn't get the same treatment. In fact so few U.S. military personnel volunteered to meet and sit with her, that military leaders in Baghdad had to designate enlisted personnel and junior officers to spend time with the New York senator. "The meetings with [Iraqi administrator Paul] Bremer went fine, but we weren't finding a lot of takers on meeting with Clinton and [Rhode Island Democratic senator Jack] Reed," says an American staffer in Baghdad....
