Let’s face it: Hillary Clinton’s State tenure has been a failure
American foreign policy under Secretary Clinton has been one disaster after another. Even if you don’t think she deserves blame for all of them — or even most of them — it defies common sense that her tenure can be called a success.
America’s relations with its two main allies in the Middle East — Israel and Egypt — have gotten worse during her tenure.
In Egypt, we lost a reliable ally, Hosni Mubarak, and gained a new president, Mohammed Morsi, backed by the radical Muslim Brotherhood after the White House belatedly supported the Tahir Square uprisings. Morsi is a fundamentalist who believes the Egyptian should “nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred” towards Israel and is now acting to consolidate power. Even Obama has conceded Egypt is not really an ally anymore. We’re still giving them arms though.
Relations between the US and Israel have deteriorated, with the bad blood between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu being pretty public. The administration hasn’t even tried to revive the stalled Israel-Palestine peace negotiations.
