Ms. Hillary projects

In his excellent Wall Street Journal column on the falsity of Obama’s AIPAC speech yesterday, Bret Stephens recalls , and Secretary of State Clinton’s answer to a question from a Tunisian student about U.S. politicians courting the “Zionist lobbies.” Accepting the premise of the question, Ms. Hillary explained that “a lot of things are said in political campaigns that should not bear a lot of attention.”

Ms. Hillary’s answer may or may not bear on the positions of the GOP candidates on Iran’s nuclear program, but it perfectly explains the gist of her boss’s AIPAC speech. It is a campaign document, and it cannot be taken at face value.
