So, she’s going to follow Obama’s foreign policy [3]?

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview Monday [4] that she does not see a “circumstance” in which the United States should put combat troops into Iraq or Syria.

Clinton, who doubled-down on President Obama’s position, told “CBS This Morning” host Charlie Rose that she “cannot conceive of any circumstances” in which to put combat troops on the ground. She also argued that putting thousands of combat troops on the ground — as some Republicans have suggested — should be a “non-starter.”

“I agree with the president’s point that we’re not putting American combat troops back into Syria or Iraq. We are not going to do that,” Clinton told Rose Monday.
