Seems that Hillary Clinton has been doing a little resume-padding about her "experience" in foreign policy. In particular, Hillary's claim to have tried to stop the Rwandan genocide appears to be a crock. Says Hilzoy of Obsidian Wings: "If Hillary Clinton did press for military intervention in Rwanda, her advocacy left no trace in the world."

Is it any wonder that Samantha Power, who (literally) wrote the (Pulitzer-Prize-winning) book about Rwanda, had nasty things to say about Hillary Clinton? Having stood idly by when hundreds of thousands of people were murdered and her husband's administration was, in effect, helping the murderers, HRC is now claiming credit for actions she never took. Hilzoy calls this "grotesque." I could think of stronger words.
