Hillary Clinton “will deliver an in-depth speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York about her national security proposals and how she would combat the Islamic State,” the New York Times reports.
“The Democrats so far have spoken mostly in broad platitudes, vowing to support France and stand with American allies in the fight against terrorism, but offering few specifics. Mrs. Clinton will face the tricky dynamic of putting forth her own ideas without appearing to criticize President Obama, under whom she served as secretary of state for four years.”
First Read: “A Clinton campaign aide previews the speech, saying the Democratic candidate will call for 1) defeating ISIS in Syria, Iraq and across the region; 2) disrupting ISIS’s network; and 3) beefing up defense/security capabilities in American and across the world. Now while those three areas aren’t necessarily different than what Obama has said in the past, we can pretty much guarantee that she’ll say it with sharper-edged rhetoric.”
