Clinton's Hawkish Record Faces Test in 2016

Michael Crowley: "Clinton has demonstrated a well-documented willingness to use American military power overseas. Gates' book is just the latest evidence, along with previous reporting and original interviews with current and former Obama officials, of the strikingly hawkish voice Clinton offered during Obama Situation Room debates...In fact, Clinton may have been the administration's most reliable advocate for military action. On at least three crucial issues--Afghanistan, Libya, and the bin Laden raid--Clinton took a more aggressive line than Gates, a Bush-appointed Republican."
