Hillary and the South Sudan Crisis

A timely post about from www.hughhewitt.com analyzing Hillary Clinton and South Sudan. This follows this post analyzing the hard-left pull on the Democratic party for the next two election cycles. In the meantime, you can get more involved if you like here and read an interesting book HERE.

South Sudan On The Brink

 posted by Hugh Hewitt

Not only does civil war threaten, some unknown number of Americans are caught in the middle, and the Obama administration’s effort to get them out failed.  More background here.
Hillary visited the nation in July of 2102, and praised the “courage” of the president of the country, Salvaa Kiir, who is now precipitating the violence.  The good news is that President Obama “directed his team to keep him abreast of developments in South Sudan.”
Here’s Hillary with Kiir, 18 months ago:
