Then there is Iran. In one exchange, close adviser Phillippe Reines provided corroboration that the 2009 Iranian election was rife with fraud. Oddly, Clinton only wanted to know if it was public (and hence the basis for Americans to doubt the entire engagement strategy.) You will recall that she and the president were understated in their pronouncements on the Green Movement, a stance she said she regretted in her book “Hard Choices.” It is also noteworthy that Sidney Blumenthal, whose expertise was nonexistent, provided information to her. One gets the impression she is a passive observer, cocooned in her political nest. And maybe that is all she really was in this administration.
