Or how about our nearest neighbor ally, Canada? Hillary went to Ottawa and publicly rebuked Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservative government for not pushing abortion in Africa. Harper apparently feels enough Africans are dying of preventable diseases and Canada's aid dollars are better spent saving lives than killing them.

Hillary has chilled our relations with Britain. She reopened the Falklands Islands matter. In 1982, the British went to war with the military junta in Argentina to reclaim the Falklands--whose island people have been staunchly loyal to Britain since the early nineteenth century. Rather than let sleeping dogs lie--or in the case of the Falklands--sleeping sheep dogs--Madame Secretary raised an undiplomatic row by calling the Falklands the "Malvinas"--the named the Argentine dictators gave them when they tried so infamously to seize them in 1982.

Let's not forget how she lashed out at Israel for building apartment houses in Jerusalem for the increasing numbers of Jewish refugees who flee to the Jewish State. When the threatened Jews move to Israel, where are they supposed to live? Richard Nixon was excoriated in the press for "counting Jews" at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But Hillary Clinton counts Jews in Jerusalem and in the media, it passes over.

Wherever we look, we see an administration foreign policy in tatters. And yet the media worries that the murders in Benghazi will stain Hillary Clinton's tenure. They are only the inevitable result of a policy of cringing. Cringing is dangerous in any situation. In world affairs, it can prove fatal. She should certainly resign.
