Clinton declares ‘new moment’ in U.S. foreign policy in speech
By Glenn Kessler
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton declared Wednesday that “a new American moment” has arrived in international relations, “a moment when our global leadership is essential, even if we must often lead in new ways.”
In a lengthy speech at the Council on Foreign Relations in which she defended the Obama administration’s foreign policy approach, Clinton said that “this is a moment that must be seized – through hard work and bold decisions – to lay the foundations for lasting American leadership for decades to come.”
Critics have said that the administration’s diplomacy has yielded little on such difficult issues as Israeli-Palestinian peace and Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, but Clinton argued the opposite, saying that substantial progress has been made on those fronts through “classic shoe-leather diplomacy.” She urged patience, saying that the fruits of the administration’s labors will not be apparent for some time.
Answering questions from the audience after her speech, Clinton took a shot at the Iranian government. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that Iran is morphing into a military dictatorship with a, you know, sort of religious ideological veneer,” she said. “And I don’t think that’s what the Iranian revolution for a republic of Iran, an Islamic republic of Iran, was ever meant to become.”
