Bill Clinton interviewed by the French . . .

Excerpts from an Agency France Presse story:
Bill Clinton calls for US strategy that creates partners, not terrorists

Tue Aug 9, 9:55 AM ET

The United States needs a strategy that "creates more partners and fewer terrorists," former US president Bill Clinton said in an interview.

"We can't put the whole world behind walls. We can't kill all our enemies. ... The fate of Americans is closely entwined with that of other peoples," he said in comments reported in the French newspaper Le Monde.
. . .

His country needs "a strategy which consists of destroying the legitimacy of an ideology which falsely relies on religion to create and maintain conflicts," he said.

"Religion must become a means to resolving conflicts."
Spot thought our friend Bob (see the last post) would especially enjoy the article, which you can read in its entirety here.
