One of the correspondence showed in
Hillary’s emails Clinton, the former US Secretary of State, who was recently declassified, the policies and practices of US embassies, diplomats and civil society organizations in Egypt, Libya and all Arab countries that witnessed the events of the so-called “Arab Spring” in 2011.
And in an email sent on September 22, 2012, that is, only 10 days after the bombing of the American consulate in Benghazi, and at a time when the American embassy and Western institutions in Egypt and Libya were subjected to acts of violence, an international American foreign policy lawyer, named Anne Marie Slaughter, sent to Breda To Hillary, who was Secretary of State at the time.
“I’ve been on my mind a lot over the past week. I know your personal feeling of losing lives and your dedicated staff, and that some criticize you for putting their lives at risk, but amid all the criticism, I think what happened in reality justifies your policies and practices and in terms of your policies toward revolutions,” the American attorney says to Hillary. Arabic”.
She added, “Although we witnessed brutal attacks by Al Qaeda in our embassies more often, especially in Kenya and Tanzania with greater loss of life, we have never seen local citizens from those countries demonstrating on our behalf in the streets, as we have seen throughout Libya. the week”.
The American attorney continued: “Support is our new brand. For Libyans to carry signs that say (We are sorry for America, this does not represent Islam), it is precisely the purpose behind what we do, and it is our hope when we supported the Libyan intervention, and many Libyan bloggers and tweeters took the same position. ».
She continued her speech to Hillary: “The public apology and condemnation of violence by the Libyan and Tunisian governments shows a very different face of Islam, the Tunisian government is the government of the Muslim Brotherhood, so that you have an Islamist representative of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Egyptian government and do something else instead of violence and setting fire. Something we did not even expect two years ago. ”
“We have seen many social media-inspired riots over the past three or four years affected by the burning of the Quran, Danish cartoons … etc., again, this is old news, the new is the voices ready to denounce violence,” she said.
The correspondent attached an article to the e-mail and commented on it, saying: “Below I attach a good article by a sophisticated former general, thinker, on these issues; “He has a great overview of the various reactions to what happened over the past week and also a diagnosis at the end that says we need more of what we have been doing, not less.”
And she continued: “This raises questions about what we do and how we do it. Chris Stevens was the ambassador who suffocated to death in the consulate in Benghazi, he was there participating in all the ways that the United States should engage if we were to build new relationships not only with the governments of these countries but with the people, the people who are now protesting his killing in the streets, he knew “The risks, but he chose to take them in the ways that many of our diplomats and certainly USAID workers had hoped to do.”
“It’s remarkable that everyone says it was one of the best we had,” she added. It is important that the best, most dynamic, and most ambitious members of the diplomatic corps are the ones who embrace and exercise your vision of diplomacy. My best students are willing to go out there and take the risk of working with NGOs and aid workers, in fact this is what they want as the price of being able to communicate with people on the ground. . For them, the kind of work Chris was doing, reaching out to the Libyans in every way possible, would make the Foreign Service big and more attractive, not less, despite all the risks, many of the young diplomats who fit that mold are their civilian counterparts. Our soldiers … carry the same mission. ”
“They are serving their countries in dangerous places, and you know that they cannot do the task that needs to be done without taking the risk,” she said. “We do everything in our power to keep them safe, but not to the extent that they hinder them from carrying out the task we need them to do.”
Throughout the e-mail, the American attorney tried to show Hillary that the positive reaction to the killing of Chris Stephens and the support of Arab peoples to America is the purpose of the American embassies and organizations in the Arab countries.
Attorney Hillary advised: “Maybe in your future letters, you can talk about the way we honor our soldiers and talk about Chris in ways that make them symbols of a new generation of American diplomats, and show that their loss is tragic and painful, but it makes a real difference. For me, I don’t see their deaths as our failure in Preserving their safety, but as a sacrifice in the service of a new way of our engagement with the Arab world, a method that will help us in the long term to make us all safer and more effective. ”
And concluded the attorney e-mail encouraging Hillary in her scheme, saying: “With all my sympathy, keep calm and progress.”
