US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Sunday that Al-Qaeda has grown more "creative and flexible" since 2001 and poses greater threat to the United States than Iran and North Korea.
This is a dumb statement when you consider Iran is lending support to the Taliban in Afghanistan and supporting the Sunnis in Iraq.
But what Clinton said about the Sunnis in Iraq, it only makes sense..
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday the United States would oppose any new effort to exclude large numbers of Sunni Arab politicians from Iraq's March 7parliamentary elections. Iraq's most senior Sunni official, Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi discussed the issue in Washington this week with top administration officials.
Obama administration officials are worried that the exclusion of Sunnis from the election would undermine the process and perhaps spur new unrest that could complicate U.S. troop withdrawal plans.
This should help maintain stability in the region. /s
