Nobody dodges responsibility like a Clinton.
“[Clinton] was asked to appear at House Foreign Affairs next week, and we have written back to the Chairman to say that she’ll be on travel next week,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters yesterday. “She has a commitment with the Secretary of Defense to the AUSMIN Ministerial.” Per AFP, “AUSMIN is the highest level forum for Australia and US consultation on foreign policy, defense and strategic issues.” The United States is reportedly concerned about Australia’s plan to cut their defense spending.
Well, that’s about as funny as a sharp stick in the eye. The United States is concerned about Australia’s plan to cut their defense, when the United States is set to slash our defense to pre-World War I levels if sequestration happens.
