Clinton talks a good game but she is skin deep when it comes to national security.
Historically, Clinton has voted and spoken an opposite stance.
Hillary told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on 5/24/05 that "a nuclear-armed Iran is unacceptable" yet barely a month later, Senator Clinton voted to immunize the Mullah’s nukes from attack by denying our military a nuclear bunker buster bomb we need to destroy deep underground nuclear sites in Iran (Roll Call 171,7/1/05).
John Spencer expressed his concerns.
Senator Clinton didn't offer specifics when she claimed to support “whatever steps are necessary” to defend Israel against Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran and Syria in the military conflict in the Middle East. Her lack of details has more to do with a conflict of interest, some tied directly to her campaign fundraising.
Past is prologue -- including some recent flip-flopping.
Senator Clinton voted on 6/15/06 against U.S. support for "self-determination" for the people of Iran over the existing form of government.
This resolution sponsored by U.S. Senator Rick Santorum was backed by Democrats Evan Bayh of Indiana and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.
Meanwhile, Roll Call reported early this year that Clinton zealously wants $1 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars pumped into the United Nations Human Rights Commission, a council slated to include Syria, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Sudan and Libya (Roll Call 73, 3/16/06). Both Israel and the United States opposed creation of this council that was championed by China and Cuba.
Writing in the International Herald Tribune, former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and House Speaker Newt Gingrich called this commission supported by Clinton "inadequate" and "distorted":
Mitchell and Gingrich even quoted Hillary's favorite First Lady:
John Spencer's noted Hillary's two faces on letting Syria be a judge of human rights.
Clinton's leanings seem more dictated by the almighty dollar than any regard for U.S. security. The Senator has taken money from an anti-sanctions group called the American Iranian Council through wealthy businessmen Hassan Nemazee and Faraj Aalaei.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Namazee has contributed $4000 to Clinton’s reelection while Aalaei has given $1000.
The American Muslim Taskforce, composed of at least one Muslim lobbying group which has given money to Clinton, described Israel's defense against Palestinian aggression as "war crimes" this past November. The American Muslim Taskforce has characterized Israel's fighting as "state-terror" -- and these statements came from a news outlet called The Muslim News.
Part of the American Muslim Alliance, this organization is not a friend of U.S. interests yet Hillary is monetarily entangled with them
In a detailed Newsmax article in late 2000, Larry Auster warned of Hillary's terrorist conflicts and her blind eye to human rights violations.
Less than a year before September 11, Alamoudi was talking about overtaking the United States.
News Max noted a Wall Street Journal article detailing how Clinton's conflicts went far beyond accepting money from the American Muslim Council in 2000 -- and that the obvious dangers long preceded her run for U.S. Senate. She learned from her husband.
As early as 1996, Clinton knew that accepting money from these Muslim lobbyists was risky business.
John Spencer pointed out how Hillary's form of supposed "diplomacy" enables and appeases terrorist acts.
Will the rhetoric from Hillary Clinton be based on the highest bidder or what is best for the defense of the United States?
The Hill reported Democrats racing to propose resolutions signaling strong support for Israel during its violent showdown with Hezbollah, including a U.S. Senate resolution expected this week supporting “Israel’s right of self-defense … to take appropriate action to deter aggression by terrorist groups and their state sponsors” and condemning the governments of Iran and Syria for their financial backing of Hezbollah and Hamas.
John Spencer has been blunt on what America faces and why Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be Commander-In-Chief, let alone a U.S. Senator.

Ignore the woman behind the curtain!!!
Newsday's blog, Spin Cycle, caught two unexplained accounting charges from an Iowa airport hotel to Hillary Clinton's New York Senate race.
Friends of Hillary communications director Ann Lewis said the charges were a "bizarre, inexplicable clerical error."
Well, at least the photographer hadn't been in the Hamptons and the money wasn't spent on any black helicopters.

John Spencer has taken a commanding 21 point lead over his Republican opponent KT McFarland, 36-15, according to the most recent WNBC/Marist Poll.
In the first month since John Spencer was chosen as the Republican and Conservative nominee for U.S. Senate, the former Yonkers Mayor has ratcheted up his campaign. He has the money, the message and momentum all on his side.
People will be coming out to vote and these are voters John Spencer can reach. People know what's at stake in this U.S. Senate race and no one should underestimate the resolve of sentiment against Hillary Clinton. Take a close look at those negatives. Clinton's negatives continue to rise. She has experienced no boost in poll numbers. By no measure has John Spencer ever been turned back by Clinton and he has continued to whittle away at her margin.
According to a detailed Urban Elephants chart, every major polling source in New York state (Quinnipiac, Marist, Siena, Zogby, Strategic Vision) has shown John Spencer gaining ground on Hillary Clinton by margins of 2-6 percent in almost ever poll each have taken since the Spring. As important, the polls have shown Hillary steadily losing ground and gaining much higher unfavorable ratings.
As people learn more about John Spencer, his numbers have steadily climbed -- and we must work even harder now to spread the word. With Clinton's glass jaw showing, expect some seismic shifts in the coming weeks.
The dramatic gains in the Republican primary were due to Spencer's hard work and determination, competing with a crowd of five candidates over the past year.
The gains against U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton can only turn out to be as dramatic.
