BREAKING FROM WIKILEAKS: Hillary Clinton Advised Overthrow of Assad
Hillary Clinton’s 2012 emails were hiding another factoid.
Hillary Clinton believed that it would be in Israel’s best interest if Bashar al-Assad were overthrown.

According to Wikileaks:
It is the strategic relationship between Iran and the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria that makes it possible for Iran to undermine Israel’s security — not through a direct attack, which in the thirty years of hostility between Iran and Israel has never occurred, but through its proxies in Lebanon, like Hezbollah, that are sustained, armed and trained by Iran via Syria. The end of the Assad regime would end this dangerous alliance.
Bringing down Assad would not only be a massive boon to Israel’s security, it would also ease Israel’s understandable fear of losing its nuclear monopoly. Then, Israel and the United States might be able to develop a common view of when the Iranian program is so dangerous that military action could be warranted.
With Assad gone, and Iran no longer able to threaten Israel through its, proxies, it is possible that the United States and Israel can agree on red lines for when Iran’s program has crossed an unacceptable threshold. In short, the White House can ease the tension that has developed with Israel over Iran by doing the right thing in Syria. The rebellion in Syria has now lasted more than a year. The opposition is not going away, nor is the regime going to accept a diplomatic solution from the outside. With his life and his family at risk, only the threat or use of force will change the Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s mind. (Read the full brief released by Wikileaks here.)
Clinton Suggested Air Strikes
Just hours before President Trump ordered airstrikes of Syria, Clinton was giving a speech. Between whining about losing the Presidency and crying over suspected misogyny, Clinton also spoke about Syria.
As Elite Daily reported:
“I believe then, I’ve said this repeatedly, that I thought we should’ve done more at that point,” Clinton said about her initial dealings with Syria. “I think we should’ve been more willing to confront Assad.”\
Assad had an air force, and that air force is the cause of most of the civilian deaths as we have seen over the years and as we saw again in the last few days.
I really believe that we should’ve — and still should — take out his airfields and prevent him from being able to use them to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them.
Former Secretary of State Kerry said the same thing.
Interestingly, Obama never acted, though both his Secretaries of State felt the same. This step was considered a good move in the protection of Israel, something Obama has never cared much about.
