Sure politicians are calculating, even cunning. Those are occupational traits. Maybe Hillary thinks she can push the envelope into prevarication and distortion with impunity. After all, as a Wall Street corporatist and a war-mongering militarist, she has gotten away with much worse.

#Iraq Will Obama Listen to Slaughter and Power (liberal interventionist) ? | The Nation

#Iraq Will Obama Listen to Slaughter and Power (liberal interventionist) ? | The Nation | News in english | Scoop.it

#Iraq Will Obama Listen to Slaughter and Power (liberal interventionist) ? | The Nation ---It’s appropriate that two of the leading liberal interventionists, both of whom have served in prominent positions in Barack Obama’s administration – are named Power and Slaughter.

Samantha Power, of course, is Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations, and a leading advocate of using American force overseas, especially when in her opinion civilian casualties can be exaggerated as “genocide.” And Anne-Marie Slaughter, long a foreign policy insider and currently head of the New America Foundation, served under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as director of policy planning at the State Department (2009-2011). Back in 2011, Power and Slaughter joined Clinton and a handful of White House aides in supporting the US military action to topple Muammar Qaddafi, an action that turned that country into a warring mosaic of militias, terrorists, and freelance warlords.

So it’s not surprising that in today’s New York Times, the influential Slaughter issues a clarion call for US military action in both Iraq and Syria. In the piece, “Don’t Fight in Iraq and Ignore Syria,” Slaughter asks wh

#Iraq formally seeks US air strikes - BBC.com

Iraq has formally called on the United States to launch air strikes against jihadist militants who have seized several key cities.

"We have a request from the Iraqi government for air power," confirmed top US military commander Gen Martin Dempsey.

The announcement came after insurgents launched an attack on Iraq's biggest oil refinery north of Baghdad.

PM Nouri Maliki earlier urged Iraqis to unite against the militants.

Government forces are battling to push back ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant) and its Sunni Muslim allies in Diyala and Salahuddin provinces, after the militants overran the second city, Mosul, last week.

US President Barack Obama is due to discuss the Iraq crisis with senior Congress members on Wednesday.

Ahead of the meeting Senate leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, said he did not "support in any way" getting American troops involved in the Iraqi "civil war".

But Gen Dempsey told a Senate panel that it was in America's "national interest to counter [ISIS] wherever we find them".
