Best of the Windy HRC confirmation blogging!

“We have seen the abuses by contractors,” Clinton says, lamenting the overall trend of moving to a contracted State Department security workforce. “It’s been contractors across the board … I think we have to take a hard look about whether we want the U.S. government to be a contractor agency.” She declines to say, as she did during her presidential campaign, that the State Department should ban “mercenaries.”

Oh! Wait! There she goes: “Our civilian employees need to be protected. As we withdraw our troops, we have to get assurances of their protection by Iraqi troops, or we have to use contractors.” Well, so much for the campaign promise. Doug Brooks, you called it.
