Shane Bauer, Former US Prisoner in Iran, Spars with Hillary Clinton over Her Call for New Sanctions

VIDEO AT LINK

On Sunday, CNN’s Jake Tapper questioned Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on her calls for fresh sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile tests. Tapper read out tweets by American journalist and former Iran prisoner Shane Bauer criticizing Clinton’s comments. "When I was in prison in Iran, whenever I heard Hillary’s voice, my heart would sink," Bauer wrote. "All she ever does with Iran is inflame tensions." In response, Clinton said while she "appreciate[s] what he went through … we have a very clear path we are pursuing with Iran," that includes new sanctions, if necessary. Bauer joins us to respond.

That is such a dismissive remark. She has no clue what he or the troops were going through and anyone who cared, would not be starting wars all over the place.

SHE WAS WRONG on Iraq. Is she hoping to repeat that awful, historically tragic bad decision again? I worry about that more than anything should she get to the WH or any of he Repubs.

Why Bernie really is our only choice.

Foreign Policy... Narcissistic and heartless... empathetic when the camera is on though.... Working the Flint thing and the lead poisoning issue ... "using" the dilemma of these kids to achieve her own goals... This is not very positive behavior... Could this represent a flaw in Hillary's character?

I sometimes have a little thought flit across my mind that says she isn't so bad and then reality slaps me on the side of my head.

That's what these politicians do, they take advantage of our good nature.

"All she ever does with Iran is inflame tensions."

She needs to stop her warmongering. It has become bizarre and very creepy.

PEACE
LOVE
