Hillary Insists 'The Reset Worked'
Less than a week after Russia shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton desperately defended her legacy. “[T]he reset worked,” she declared. Come again? “It was an effort to try to obtain Russian cooperation on some key objectives while [Dmitri] Medvedev was president,” she said, later adding it “succeeded” because it was meant to be “a device to try to refocus attention on the transactional efforts that we needed to get done with the Russians.” As if current events weren’t enough to illustrate the absurdity of Clinton’s claim, Time magazine – no titan of the right-wing conspiracy – has a cover story titled “Cold War II: The West is losing Putin’s dangerous game.” But sure, the “reset worked.”
