Hillary: U.S. "partially responsible" for Pakistani jihadism

"Be careful what you sow," admonishes Hillary.Yet how is the U.S. responsible for the more important fact that 75% of the Pakistani people are eager to implement sharia -- a move which, among other things, would lead to a perpetual state of hostilities between Pakistan ("land of the pure") and the U.S. (infidels)? Either way, it's time the Obama administration dropped the pseudo-history lessons -- specifically, interpreting all of today's problems as products of earlier administrations -- and just deal with the facts. Sure, it's a challenge; but shouldn't those who aspire to be political leaders -- such as being president of the U.S. -- expect such challenges? "US harvesting what it sowed, says Hillary," from the Daily Times, April 25:

LAHORE: The United States is partly responsible for the present mess as it virtually abandoned Pakistan after the Soviets left Afghanistan, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Friday. “There is a very strong argument, which is: It was not a bad investment to end the Soviet Union, but let’s be careful what we sow, because we will harvest. So we then left Pakistan. We said, okay, fine, you deal with the Stingers that we have left all over your country. You deal with the mines that are along the border. And by the way, we do not want to have anything to do with you,” she told a Congressional committee hearing.
