Clinton Plans to Restore Diplomacy to U.S. Foreign Policy –FoxNews

Hilary Clinton has threatened the future security of the United States by declaring that her tenure as Secretary of State will include a forcible return to the notion that the best way to secure peace is by talking.

The last time a Clinton pursued that strategy, bin Laden was able to flee Sudan for Afghanistan, al Qaeda was able to bomb African embassies, the USS Cole, and plan 9-11, and India, North Korea, and Pakistan was able to build nuclear weapons right under our noses without us knowing about it.
