To hear this narrative (see the video from yesterday for the news cameras of the event) leads one to believe that in a Clinton Whitehouse that reasoning is thus:
There was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn’t go, so send the First Lady.
So I can see Bill Clinton sitting there now thinking, "well hmmmmmm lets see... hmmmm hot landing zone, snipers, too dangerous for me... hmmmmmmm... lets see, ohhhh I got it! I'll send the wife and kids!!!!"
Here is the same mispeaking on three occasions, notice the rubes in the audience.
Well the truth of the matter is that Bob Dole sponsored "Concurrent Resolution 150" in 1986 and followed that legislation through until 1999 when a genuine coallition was formed, with genuine UN support, and resulted in a campaign where not a single US soldier was lost, resulting in a complete surrender on the part of Serbia to UN madates, and a subsequent war crimes tribunal for Milosvec.
And this was done without torture, breaking Fisa, cherry picking intel, or anything else but Bob Dole pushing the idea of human rights.
In reality the far-right was crying wag-the-dog and observing that the kosovo conflict was a distraction from the fact that President Clinton had committed perjury when he said that he had not had sex with that woman, irrespective of the fact that he ejaculated all over her.
The truth? Dole pushed for the force and saved Kosovo and Clinton from impeachment and Hillary had nothing to do with this as far as her resume is concerned.
I have never seen such a distortion of the facts, or a hitchiker of the virtues of others.
Senator Clinton, you are no Senator Dole!
