PRESS RELEASE


British Still in All-Out War Against the Clintons

Nov. 24, 2008 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC).

The City of London's flagship publication, the Financial Times, issued new instructions to President-Elect Barack Obama today, in its second editorial: get rid of Hillary Clinton. After reviewing and praising Obama's selections for top economic posts, the FT comes to the point:

Economics aside, the biggest surprise among Mr. Obama's rumoured appointments is Hillary Clinton, whose selection as secretary of state is said to be 'on track.' This is a far more questionable choice, since Mrs. Clinton is so lacking in foreign policy experience. The appointment gives rise to unhelpful speculation about the new president's motives. Is he attempting to bind his party's wounds? His victory already did that, and governing well would assure a full recovery. Is he attempting to neutralise her as a rival for the presidency in 2012? If things go badly for him, it will take more than this to quell another Clinton bid.

Could Mrs. Clinton subordinate herself to Mr. Obama, and devote herself to making his presidency a success? That is doubtful and, with many far better qualified candidates available, is a risk there is no need to take.

When such prominent City of London interests, inherently committed to the destruction of the United States, and fairly suspected of planning the assassination of the incoming President to facilitate that aim, weigh in so heavily against a leading personality, the listener would do well to beware.
