Hillary Clinton: I Actually Opposed Going Into Pakistan, Before I Supported It

Hillary Clinton: FLIP

July 27 : US Democratic presidential candidate and New York Senator Hillary Clinton has rejected suggestions of a unilateral US strike in Pakistan’s tribal region, American troops should accompany Pakistan troops.
Addressing a fund-raising dinner organised by the National Association of Pakistani-Americans, Hillary said a unilateral US strike would not produce the desired results, but would create fresh problems.
Only a combined effort could destroy militant hideouts in the area, she added.


But she did not rule out U.S. attacks inside Pakistan, citing the missile attacks her husband, then-President Bill Clinton, ordered against Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in 1998. 
“If we had actionable intelligence that Osama bin Laden or other high-value targets were in Pakistan I would ensure that they were targeted and killed or captured,” she said.

The first comment is from July 27, the second from August 1. Way to go, Senator.
