Clinton Never Gave Up on Syria

On the heels of Hillary Clinton’s departure as secretary of state, The New York Times published an interview from her second to last day in office, grilling her on Syria. When asked whether the U.S. has done everything it could to end the massacre in the country, Clinton said the Obama administration has “never stopped trying,” despite facing many more obstacles there than in Libya and other countries where violence sprang up during the Arab Spring. She also said that the Clinton administration’s Kosovo crisis was “immensely simple” compared with the Syria crisis, especially given that Russia is actively aiding Assad’s regime.
