    ....A look at some of Clinton's specific foreign policy claims:

    NORTHERN IRELAND: "I helped to bring peace to Northern Ireland."
    Clinton traveled to Northern Ireland five times as first lady, and was a tireless advocate for the peace process. But she was not directly involved in negotiating the Good Friday peace accord.
    She did encourage Irish women on both sides of the conflict to come together and get involved in a process that was dominated by men.
    Former Democratic Sen. George Mitchell, who brokered the peace accord, said Clinton was "quite helpful."
    "She became quite active in encouraging women in Northern Ireland to engage in the political process and in the peace process, and ultimately the role of women was important in moving the process forward," said Mitchell, who is neutral in the presidential race. "She was one of many people who participated in encouraging women to get involved, not the only one."
    John Hume, the Catholic leader who shared the 1998 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the peace accord, credits Clinton for playing a "pivotal role" in the peace process.
    But others in Northern Ireland say Clinton overstates her role.
    "The road to peace was carefully documented, and she wasn't on it," says Brian Feeney, an author and former leading Belfast politician from the same party as Hume....

    Only so long as we support the left wing agenda. And Clinton did not modernize our military. He destroyed it. More lies from the liar of all liars.
