The Intercept (via Bpb-Newsletter) berichtet über eine bei Wikileaks veröffentlichte Rede der demokratischen Präsidentschaftskandidatin Hillary Clinton. Darin äußerte sie sich 2013 u.a. über die Folgen einer Flugverbotszone in Syrien: „In her remarks to Goldman Sachs, Clinton pointed to the Syrian government’s air defense systems, and noted that destroying them would take the lives of many Syrian civilians. (…) She also addressed how much harder it would be to intervene in Syria, compared to Libya. ‚In Libya we didn’t have that problem. It’s a huge place.‘ (…) While Clinton admitted these complications in establishing a no-fly zone, she also urged other forms of intervention. ‚And there is still an argument that goes on inside the administration and inside our friends at NATO and the Europeans. How do intervene — my view was you intervene as covertly as is possible for Americans to intervene. We used to be much better at this than we are now,‘ she said.“ (jw)
