Anyone wondering what “democracy promotion” will look like in a Hillary Clinton administration may get a taste from a new audiotape released yesterday of Hillary addressing the editorial board of the Jewish Press back in 2006.
In the tape Hillary is clearly heard telling the Jewish Press journalists present:
I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake. And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.
Listen for yourselves:
Present at the meeting was Jewish Press editor Eli Chomsky, who recalls being shocked that “anyone could support the idea—offered by a national political leader, no less—that the U.S. should be in the business of fixing foreign elections.”
Perhaps Hillary should come clean on how many elections she “determined who was going to win” beforehand while Secretary of State. There is something uniquely disturbing about Hillary Clinton believing that it is acceptable for people to believe that they are selecting a leader by a democratic vote, but for the outcome to be determined prior. Is this another law that Hillary Clinton sees herself above?
