Hillary Clinton on Iraq War, Regime Change

This Hardball with Chris Matthews clip  has Hillary Clinton sounding like she voted for an invasion of Iraq because George Bush backed reconstruction funds for New York after 9/11. She says she voted for war because Iraq had nuclear weapons, but admits to there being no evidence for Iraq possessing actual weapons, instead referring to 1990s evidence that Iraq had nuclear weapons programs. She then continues on to defend US-sponsored coups and assassinations by comparing Mosaddegh, Arbenz, Lumumba, Allende with Hitler. It’s really rather breathtaking.
