(Republicaninformer.com)- In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton vehemently advocated that the United States stop negotiating with the Iranian regime and instead should do all in its power to help the Iranian women who are resisting theocracy.
Amanpour said that the entire world is watching the brave women and girls there defend their rights. The crackdown has also been witnessed. She said we also know that trying to convince Iran to rejoin the nuclear agreement is complicated for the US due to other policy considerations.
President Joe Biden has been attempting to revive the nuclear agreement from the Obama administration, but those talks broke down over the summer.
Amanpour said she recently asked Antony Blinken, the current secretary of state, what more the US might do to protect Iranian women’s rights. Amanpour asked Clinton the same.
Hillary said that it was decided that overt American support for the protests during the Green Revolution in 2009 would actually harm those movements and the demonstrators themselves based on the finest intelligence and information available at the time. Therefore, they managed to maintain social media behind the scenes so that people could organize and communicate. Now, she thinks it’s very different.
“What’s occurring now deserves our wholehearted support. And I believe that anyone who talks on behalf of the US government should always make it clear that they support the Iranian people in general and the women and girls in particular.”
She believes we should keep using international organizations to take whatever necessary action. She was a member of a group of influential women that urged the UN to expel Iran from the UN Commission on the Status of Women. She said they shouldn’t have been there, to begin with. And she thinks we’re making progress toward actually achieving it.
“It is the moral thing to do, but I also think it’s important to maintain the world’s focus,” she said.
“Last week, I participated in an event with a group of Iranian American women and artists who sincerely pleaded for continued attention to Iran and continued coverage of internal events,” said Clinton.
Clinton went on to praise CNN host Christiane Amanpour for her defiance that ended an interview with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi back in September.
“And Christiane, I want to thank you for refusing to put on a hijab to continue an interview with the president of Iran because we need to be standing with the people of Iran,” she said.
Clinton said, “I believe that when Trump pulled us out of Iran, we lost sight of what they were doing there. And from what I can tell, they have resumed spinning those centrifuges.”
And Hillary resumes spinning history to reflect herself in the most favorable light.
