Consider Hillary a ‘founding member of ISIS’: Rudy Giuliani speaks bluntly

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani hit Hillary Clinton with a damning charge on Wednesday, saying that the former secretary of state “could be considered a founding member of ISIS.”

Appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor” to discuss the Democratic presidential front-runner’s role in fighting terrorism, Giuliani said Clinton bears responsibility for creating the Islamic State terrorist organization.

“She helped create ISIS,” Giuliani said. “Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS.”

He went on to explain his claim.

“By being part of an administration that withdrew from Iraq,” he told host Bill O’Reilly. “By being part of an administration that let [former Prime Minister Nouri al-] Maliki run Iraq into the ground, so you forced the Shiites to make a choice. By not intervening in Syria at the proper time. By being part of an administration that drew 12 lines in the sand and made a joke out of it.”

To be fair, O’Reilly pointed out that as secretary of state, the only option Clinton had to force President Barack Obama’s hand on policy would have been to resign.

“Yeah, which is what a patriot does,” Giuliani replied.
