WASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says deteriorating conditions in Iraq carry "broad regional and even global consequences."
Clinton says during an event for her new book, "Hard Choices," that it's important that Iraq's prime minister be presented with a set of conditions for any discussion about military support against a fast-moving Islamic insurgency.
The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said the U.S. faces a "delicate and difficult task" because it would not want to fight on behalf of a dysfunctional Iraqi government.
Clinton says, in her words, "there's no reason on earth that I know of that we would ever sacrifice a single American life for that."
Her remarks come after President Barack Obama said the U.S. would not be dragged into military action.
