Hillary: U.S. “partially responsible” for Pakistani jihadism
“Be careful what you sow,” admonishes Hillary. Yet how is the U.S. responsible for the more important fact thatÂ 75% of the Pakistani peopleÂ are eager to implement sharia — a move which, among other things, would lead to a perpetual state of hostilities between Pakistan (“land of the pure”) and the U.S. (infidels)? Either way, it’s time the Obama administration dropped the pseudo-history lessons — specifically, interpreting all of today’s problems as products of earlier administrations — and just deal with the facts. Sure, it’s a challenge; but shouldn’t those who aspire to be political leaders — such as being president of the U.S. — expect such challenges?
