Duh! Secretary Clinton Gets a Clue

WAPO:

The Obama administration on Wednesday renounced the proclaimed leaders of the Syrian political opposition and said any group seeking to oust President Bashar al-Assad must reject attempts by extremists to “hijack” a legitimate revolution.

Clinton had some of her strongest words to date about the risk that the uprising against Assad could be overtaken by militants who do not seek a democratic replacement.

“We also need an opposition that will be on record strongly resisting the efforts by extremists to hijack the Syrian revolution,” Clinton said. “There are disturbing reports of extremists going into Syria and attempting to take over what has been a legitimate revolution against an oppressive regime for their own purposes.”

Well half a clue anyway, she still does not get it. The resistance is at least 1/3 radical Salfis. Too bad she and Bronco Bama didn't realize this about Libya until about Oct. 1 2012.

Again, duh.
