Hillary Clinton says that U.S. troops will remain in Iraq, at least to a lesser extent!

WASHINGTON, March 14 — Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton foresees a “remaining military as well as political mission” in Iraq, and says that if elected president, she would keep a reduced military force there to fight Al Qaeda, deter Iranian aggression, protect the Kurds and possibly support the Iraqi military.

She said in the interview that there were “remaining vital national security interests in Iraq” that would require a continuing deployment of American troops.

The United States’ security would be undermined if parts of Iraq turned into a failed state “that serves as a petri dish for insurgents and Al Qaeda,” she said. “It is right in the heart of the oil region,” she said. “It is directly in opposition to our interests, to the interests of regimes, to Israel’s interests.”

BS!

There is no way ms. "If I had known then what I know now..." would change her entire platform. If she is serious, she is just as hypocritical as the rest.

Well apparently she did. There it is in plain text.

I didn't just pull this out of my you-know-what.

This, however, doesn't mean I'd vote for her. She can't seem to decide whats right. Troops or no troops, clinton. Tell us straightforward.

I think we need a Presidential candidate who is willing to stick to what he/she says in the first place. It's crazy how, right at the end or in the middle, they change what they say or change a few words around so they can find a loop hole; then, when they are later being criticized for "lying" they can say.." well when I said this i really meant this." It really annoys me....

This is why America's not ready for a woman president. They always say things and then change it around later to fit their needs. Politicians....maybe they should try speaking to those that are in Iraq, have been to Iraq, or maybe even the friends and family or our troops. Maybe then their lies will be more "well-rounded".

It's not that we're not ready for a woman; we're not "ready" (if you'd call it that) for Hillary.
