Today\’s paragraph comes to us from John Hinderaker, writing for powerlineblog.com. It concerns Hillary Clinton\’s “accomplishments” in Libya:
One of Hillary Clinton\’s key weaknesses as a presidential candidate is her poor record as Secretary of State. In that respect, Libya is critical. Hillary was the key driver behind our Libya policy. It was largely her decision to overthrow Qaddafi for no particular reason, with no plan for what would come after. This represents an almost incredible lapse in judgment. Benghazi is important, but it is only one aspect of the ongoing policy disaster that is Libya. The story is even worse, in that there is good reason to believe that Hillary pursued her flawed policy at least in part so that she would have an alleged “achievement” to tout during her presidential run.
I don\’t know what I can add here, other than to say that I think the reason Mr. Hinderaker cops Paragraph Of The Day honors speaks for itself.
