(CNN) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton backs President Barack Obama's proposal to take military action in Syria, an aide told CNN's Jessica Yellin on Tuesday.
"Secretary Clinton supports the President's effort to enlist the Congress in pursuing a strong and targeted response to the Assad regime's horrific use of chemical weapons," the aide said.
Clinton, a potential contender for president in 2016, had been receiving questions and some criticism for not speaking out amid recent developments, including the president's decision to seek congressional approval from Congress before launching any strikes.
As secretary of state, Clinton had voiced support for arming the opposition.
Politico was the first to report Clinton's support for the president's decision.
Surprised she did'nt say, "What difference does it make!"
So this is what elderly lady Hillary thinks.
The country voted in Bush, Obama not once but twice while rejecting McCain & Clinton...you just couldn't have been more wrong.....so people.... or as Obama bellows "we the people". got what we deserve.
Who gives a FLYING FIG what Hillary Whitewater or Bill Sometimes a Cigar Is Not Just a Cigar Clinton think about this. Get off the stage already. We need a strong Independent politician.
Hillary is a heat seeking missile aimed at 2016. Any statements you hear are probably part of a well orchestrated plan to return a Clinton to the White House.
Well, I don't.
Syria, another failure of Hillary Clinton's tenure at State. Just add it to the Benghazi Consulate Massacre and Coverup. This presidential wannabe is a joke.
syrian need force and brutality,tha is the only language they want.
Why would her opinion even matter?
We need to act fast on this. The longer we procrastinate the more north korea will get it in there heads that nuclear attacks are ok. Weare sending the wrong message here. Obama.... act now!
These is going to bring the economy down and down now instead of bringing economy up
Somebody record this. If it goes south, you'll never ever hear about it again on this site.
this is good she won't stand a chanch of becoming president now. it is all money oil and prestige not a thing to do with people
Why do we care what Hillary thinks, she's one of the reasons Obama's in this Hobson's Choice to begin with.
Sorting things out peacefully wil be preferable rether involving the military
Of course she does!!! Does anyone, other than Mr. Obama, REALLY care "what does it matter at this time" Hillary thinks?! I don't. She should be brought up on charges (treason, neglect of duty, etc., etc., etc.); along with her clueless boss.
Hillary has never had an original thought in her head her whole life.
Now that is a total shock, no?
Who cares what Clinton thinks. She was an absolute failure as Secretary of State and not a particularly effective carpetbagger Senator from New York. Her overall competence and integrity is seriously in doubt considering her lies and failures regarding Benghazi.
