Hillary Clinton to give counterterrorism speech Wednesday at Stanford


Presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will make an appearance Wednesday morning at Stanford University to deliver a speech on counterterrorism in the wake of the deadly bombings in Belgium on Tuesday.

Clinton is scheduled to give her speech at 11:15 a.m. at the Bechtel Conference Center at Encina Hall, located at 616 Serra Mall, according to her campaign.

In her address, Clinton will urge listeners to stand in solidarity with Europe in order to defeat the Islamic State group, according to her campaign. The speech comes after dozens of people were reported killed or injured in bombings at an airport and transit station in and near Brussels.

"These terrorists seek to undermine the democratic values that are the foundation of our allegiance and our way of life, but they will never succeed," Clinton said Tuesday in a statement. "Today's attacks will only strengthen our resolve to stand together as allies and defeat terrorism and radical jihadism around the world."

Hillary Clinton's going to talk about counterterrorism?

To quote Mrs. Clinton (with something that is bound to come over and over again if she wins her party's nomination and doesn't get indicted by the FBI):
"What difference does it make?"

Listening to a speech by Hillary Clinton on counter terrorism is like interviewing the captain of the Titanic about seamanship. They both created historic disasters of their own making.
