Not only does the current piracy kidnapping evoke laughter from longtime Democratic operative Hillary Clinton, but she gets some very relevant American history wrong, too.
As JinC Regular AC notes citing Barbara Tuchman's The First Salute:
The first country to (famously) salute the American flag were the Dutch in St. Eustace in the (then) Dutch West Indies in late 1776 - well before the French got in. And for the same reason: Anti-English politics in the age of sail and colonialism.Did I mention Clinton is now Obama's Secretary of State?
I bring that up because I know Democrats will want to salute Madam Secretary as they watch her in action in this YouTube video.
