Hillary Clinton calls Obama to clarify Syria remarks

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leaves after a meeting at the Elysee Palace in ParisBy Gabriel Debenedetti WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton, a likely Democratic contender for the White House in 2016, called President Barack Obama on Tuesday to clarify that controversial remarks she made in an interview were not intended to attack him, her spokesman said. In an interview published by The Atlantic magazine on Sunday, former Secretary of State Clinton identified the U.S. choice not to intervene early in Syria’s civil war as a “failure.” “Earlier today, the secretary called President Obama to make sure he knows that nothing she said was an attempt to attack him, his policies, or his leadership,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. “While they’ve had honest differences on some issues, including aspects of the wicked challenge Syria presents, she has explained those differences in her book and at many points since then.” Clinton, also a former first lady and senator from New York, served as Obama’s secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
