CRANKY CLINTON'S ASS PUPPET JOSHUA HOLLAND DEFENDS HER AT THE NATION BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT ASS PUPPETS DO -- THEY WHINE AND THEY LIE AND THEY WASTE OUR TIME.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, HOLLAND REPLIED, "FFFFFFFFFFPPPPPPHHHHHHHHTTTTT!"
HE WAS TALKING OUT HIS ASS YET AGAIN.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
The press treats Iraq as static because it benefits their political heroes.
It doesn't benefit the truth.
But that's how empire works.
Do you really think, at the height of the British Empire, reporters were telling the truth about how this was being done to enrich a few?
Reporters are whores, they just usually fail to satisfy the customers -- so they're bad whores.
And they so pollute the system that when a few real reporters try to cover a story there's no way not to make mistakes.
It was way too hard...it was way too tough...
On this she had not bargained
But she was like some missionary dancing to the beat of some
man's ancient drum
And she tries hard to tell this story...but it's a hard one to tell
She consults her book of Miracles...
Cry...and the wind says fly on
Well now you're on your own
You're back out on the road again for a million reasons
Well you're back out on the road again
And you try to tie together some connections...
You get some ribbons and some bows and get back out on the road again

It's a hard story to tell.
But Jeff Gerth (PROPUBLICA) and Joby Warrick (WASHINGTON POST) team up in an attempt at it:
A week before the last U.S. soldiers left his country in December 2011, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki traveled to Washington to meet the team that would help shape Iraq’s future once the troops and tanks were gone.
Over dinner at the Blair House, guest quarters for elite White House visitors since the 1940s, the dour Iraqi sipped tea while Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke of how her department’s civilian experts could help Iraqis avoid a return to terrorism and sectarian bloodshed.
Less than three years later, the relatively calm Iraq that Maliki had led in 2011 was gone. The country’s government was in crisis, its U.S.-trained army humiliated, and a third of its territory overrun by fighters from the Islamic State. Meanwhile, State Department programs aimed at helping Iraqis prevent such an outcome had been slashed or curtailed, and some had never materialized at all.
It's a strong article.
It's also an incomplete article.
It paints Hillary correctly as wanting a US presence in Iraq.
Where it fails is rushing to the White House slashing the program -- and the why of it.
As 2012, progresses, the White House walks further and further away from Iraq.
In October 2011, the State Dept takes over the US mission in Iraq.
Where is that in the article?
And where in the article does it note the 2011 performance of the State Dept to Congress?
Congress is over the money.
And Congress wanted to know what the US mission in Iraq was.
Have we all forgotten that?
We can offer dozens of hearings that we covered in real time but let's go to the December 1, 2011 snapshot which covered the November 30th hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East ans South Asia.
