Hillary Clinton: China Damaged Relationship With U.S. Over Edward Snowden

Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that China damaged its relationship with the U.S. by allowing National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden to flee from Hong Kong, despite a U.S. request to arrest him for extradition.

“That kind of action is not only detrimental to the U.S.-China relationship but it sets a bad precedent that could unravel the intricate international agreements about how countries respect the laws — and particularly the extradition treaties,” the former secretary of state and possible 2016 presidential contender told an audience in Los Angeles.

    News flash: Hillary Clinton is not a civil libertarian and is a foreign policy hack. She is deeply involved in concealing and using the NSA program. She is also the person who blamed the "vast right wing conspiracy" for fabricating the Monica Lewinsky scandal. She will say anything to preserve her position.
