Hillary’s Disastrous Foreign Policy Legacy

Hillary Clinton is running for President, in no small measure on the basis of her accomplishments as Secretary of State. The trouble is, there’s not much there there.

For example, nearly a year ago, Hillary cheerleader and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote: “Critics are right that Hillary Rodham Clinton never achieved the kind of landmark peace agreement that would make the first sentence of her obituary. But give her credit: She expanded the diplomatic agenda and adopted new tools to promote it — a truly important legacy.”

Now that she is a formal candidate, presumably Mrs. Clinton and her handlers will do a better job of spinning her claims to fame. But her real foreign policy legacy will be that of co-pilot for much of President Obama’s disastrous one.
