If you are a person who follows U.S. foreign policy, even tangentially, you must watch this video of Hillary Clinton discussing the terrorist attack / hostage crisis in Algeria:
Couple of thoughts.
First, the optic of no makeup, thicker glasses on the eyewear etc etc. is intentional cover for the previous narrative of her condition.
But, to the substance of what she is saying, you must listen to hear the complete absence of substantive content. Anyone who has closely followed the situation in North Africa, the gateway country of Libya, and the broader region issues, can see how devoid of direction this State Department is.
Hillary goes off talking about Yemen, and the U.S. activity (drones, cia etc), as if it has any connection beyond al-Qaeda’s broader operational goals to the North African theatre.
She cannot bring herself to use the name Al Shabab because she knows full well that this single organization might very soon hit the national headlines in the United States, and God forbid there be a public connection to their total lack of this administration’s reasonable policy void.
