Hillary Clinton, the Butcher of Waco

Hillary Clinton is the only Democratic presidential candidate who has not signed the American Freedom Pledge, which calls for the renewal of the United States Constitution after the damage done by the Bush administration over the past several years. Should this surprise us?

Let us not forget that, as an unusually active First Lady during her husband’s presidency, it was she who ordered the mass murder of the Branch Davidians on April 19, 1993, not Bill and not Attorney General Janet Reno. Hillary Clinton, more than anyone else, deserves the title “Butcher of Waco.”

With such a fine thing to her credit, it probably does not matter much whether she signs the pledge or not. She has already demonstrated by deed, not words, how highly she regards the Constitution—or human life, for that matter.
