Hill: Against It before For It

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton writes in her new book that she raised concerns about a swap of Taliban prisoners when she was President Barack Obama’s secretary of state and disagreed with his decision not to arm Syrian rebels, CBS News reported.CBS News said it obtained a copy of her forthcoming memoir, "Hard Choices," on Thursday, before its planned publication next Tuesday. Clinton is widely considered the Democratic front-runner if she enters the 2016 White House race.With controversy swirling over Obama’s move to swap five Taliban militants held at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for captive U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the book discloses that a much earlier discussion about him took place among top foreign policy advisers, including Clinton."I acknowledged, as I had many times before, that opening the door to negotiations with the Taliban would be hard to swallow for many Americans after so many years of war," she wrote.
