Now that Hillary the hawk has been fully un-caged, thanks to her interview with former Israeli prison guard Jeffrey Goldberg, the flak is flying. Moveon.org is trying to clip her wings and the Obama fan club is outraged. Of course, if she were running for Prime Minister of Israel ? Peter Beinart dubbed her "the Israeli government's best spokesman" for sounding even more hardline than Bibi on Gaza ? her path to power might be a bit easier: but, alas, America is an entirely different country, one capable of war-weariness, and anti-interventionist sentiments are at an all-time high.
In the course of her interview with Goldberg she went on about how we should've armed the Syrian rebels ? the same rebels who are now wreaking devastation in Iraq ? because we might have "vetted" them and somehow transformed them into Jeffersonian democrats.
