Flip Flop On Troops In Syria

- November 13, 2015

FLIP: Clinton At The Democrat Primary Debate: “We Don’t Want American Troops On The Ground In Syria.” CLINTON: “Well, I recall very well being on a debate stage, I think, about 25 times with then Senator Obama, debating this very issue. After the election, he asked me to become Secretary of State. He valued my judgment, and I spent a lot of time with him in the Situation Room, going over some very difficult issues. You know, I — I agree completely. We don’t want American troops on the ground in Syria. I never said that. What I said was we had to put together a coalition — in fact, something that I worked on before I left the State Department — to do, and yes, that it should include Arabs, people in the region.” (Hillary Clinton, Democratic Primary Debate, Las Vegas, NV, 10/13/15)

  • Clinton, August 2015: “I Will Not Put American Troops On The Ground To Fight ISIS.” CLINTON: “But I will not put American troops on the ground to fight ISIS unlike Jeb Bush who seems to imply in his remarks that that’s exactly what he would do.” (Hillary Clinton, Interview With Maria Elena Salinas, Telemundo, 8/12/15)

FLOP: Through A Spokesman, Clinton Now “Supports The Decision” To Deploy Special Operations Forces To Syria. “Hillary Rodham Clinton supports the decision by President Barack Obama to deploy a small number of special operations forces to northern Syria to work with local ground forces in the fight against Islamic State militants. Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement that Clinton "sees merit in the targeted use of special operations personnel.’ He added that Clinton also strongly ‘supports ongoing diplomatic efforts to end the conflict.’” (Lisa Lerer, “Clinton Backs Decision To Send US Commandos Into Syria,” The Associated Press, 10/30/15)
