2011 Flashback: Hillary Clinton Calls Bashar Assad a 'Reformer'

'Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he's a reformer'

Flashback: The Time Three Years Ago When Hillary Clinton Called Bashar Assad a Reformer (Washington Free Beacon)

In March 2011 Hillary Clinton argued the U.S. should not intervene in Syria as it did in Libya because Syrian President Bashir Assad was a “reformer.”

“There is a different leader in Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer,” Clinton said.

It’ll be interesting to see Ms. Clinton try to defend this comment as more than140,000 people, over 7,000 of them children, have been killed in Syria under the Assad regime.
