Hillary Clinton responds to Syria strike

In her first interview since her stunning presidential election defeat by Republican rival Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton on Thursday called for the United States to bomb Syrian air fields. "Women's issues are national security issues around the world".

The former secretary of state did not mince words when she called for an independent investigation into Russia's involvement in the U.S. election process, according to The Telegraph.

"Syria has been a wicked problem for a very long time, and the images of innocent people, of parents, and especially of children, suffering in the aftermath of that most recent deadly gas attack, were more appalling than I certainly could put into words", she said at the Texas event.

"The Comey letter coming as it did ... really raised serious questions in a lot of people that were obviously unfounded, but nevertheless happened", she said. "As an American, I'm pretty anxious", she said. "A foreign party meddled with our election. and did so in a way that we're learning more about every single day". Clinton said both the men are not fond of strong women.

Obama, Merkel will meet in Germany during Trump's trip to Europe
Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel enjoyed a drink together during the former President's 2013 trip to Berlin . The discussion is being organized jointly by the conference, which is held every two years, and the Obama Foundation.

As secretary of state under president Barack Obama, Clinton had advocated a more muscular approach (paywall) to Syria and other conflicts in the Middle East, including establishing a no-fly zone in Syria.

Speaking in NY at a summit on women's issues on April 6, the former Democratic presidential nominee and first lady said Russian Federation meant to create "distrust and confusion" by hacking into and then leaking her party's internal e-mails to the media.

"I will admit that was somewhat gratifying", she said, eliciting applause from the audience. "The more we support women, the more we support democracy ... 'We aren't going to let somebody sitting in the Kremlin with a thousand agents with [Internet] bots and trolls and everybody else try to mix-up in our election.' We have got to end that and we need to make sure that's a bipartisan American commitment". "Although he [Putin] did shake hands with me", said Clinton in a clear reference to Trump's refusal to shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during the latter's visit.

"For people who are interested in this, the almost 66 million people who voted for me, I want to give as clear and as credible an explanation as I can".
