for the first time and an autopsy has Qaddafi
has confirmed is still dead

to seeing Qaddafi’s guts?
Clinton: I thought - wow Libya deserves
to have their oil managed by a
freedom-loving country like the U.S.
Amanpour: should Qaddafi have had a
fair trial before being shot?
Clinton: absolutely - war crimes should
never be tolerated because above
we must have the rule of law for all people

Amanpour: what about the Pan Am bomber?
Clinton: I heard they canceled that tv show
Amanpour: no the terrorist
Clinton: oh yeah that was bad too
Amanpour: should we really pull all troops
out of Iraq?
Clinton: we should leave unless they ask
us to stay then we should never leave
Amanpour: what about Afghanistan and
Pakistan is the Taliban going to abuse
women after we leave?
Clinton: anyone we negotiate with must
renounce violence and respect the rights
of ethnic minorities and women
Amanpour: that rules out the Republicans
Amanpour: is there going to be a terrorist
attack in Nairobi?
Clinton: who knows all those Kenyans
Amanpour: thanks for coming Hillary

American defense policy
Amanpour: I see

McCain: I fear foreign nations may try
to influence what goes on in Iraq which is
just plain wrong
Amanpour: oh my
McCain: the people in this region loved
the surge and love American soldiers
Amanpour: they do?
McCain: Iraq might form an alliance with Iran
and we should not let than happen
Raddatz: How do you get Iraqis agree to
let U.S. troops stay?

boyish charm of Lindsay Graham
Raddatz: what about immunity?
McCain: America should have backed Alawi
in Iraq’s free and fair elections!
Stengel: Look Obama made a promise and
he’s going to keep oh an also Iraq doesn’t want
us to be there and the American people don’t
want to stay either
Amanpour: so I hear you saying we should stay
Stengel: that’s right
Biden: In Libya Qaddafi is gone and went spent
almost nothing and no Americans were killed!
Amanpour: wasn’t Libya a brilliant success?

Libya operation doesn’t prove how big our
American genitalia are
Stengel: speak for yourself Bob
Raddatz: Drones make war easier -
and fun too
Amanpour: Should the U.S. launch a
NATO attack on Syria?

Qaddafi wasn’t killed fast enough
