Hillary Clinton Iraq

Agrees with U.S. policy on Iraq

22 May, 2015

At a news conference in New Hampshipre Clinton speaks on the U.S. handling of Iraq.

I think it’s a very difficult situation and I basically agree with the policies that we are currently following, and that is, American air support is available. American intelligence and surveillance is available.

American trainers are trying to undo the damage that was done to the Iraqi army by former prime minister Maliki, who bears a very big part of the responsibility for what is happening inside of Iraq today.

This has to be fought by and won by Iraqis. There is no role whatsoever for American soldiers on the ground to go back, other than in the capacity as trainers and advisers.
