HILARY CLINTON: For me, this is not just a matter of policy, it’s personal. I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag draped caskets off the plane at Andrews. I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children. It has been one of the great honors of my life to lead the men and women of the State Department and USAID. Nearly 70,000 serving here in Washington, more than 270 posts around the world. They get up and go to work every day often in difficult and dangerous circumstances because they believe, as we believe, the United States is the most extraordinary force for peace and progress the world has ever known.
