She said: "When I was secretary of state I teamed up with Dave Petraeus, then director of the CIA, Leon Panetta, then secretary of defence, to present a plan for us to move more aggressively to support protesters to provide some back up in what I thought could turn out to be a very one-sided battle".
While Clinton expressed her continued passion in expanding the rights and opportunities for girls and women, she made it clear that she won't be running for office again, according to Vanity Fair.
Hillary Clinton gave her first interview since the shocking November election, and divulged her thoughts on President Donald Trump's administration, Russian Federation and more during the sit-down with New York Times journalist Nicholas Kristof at the Women in the World Summit, held in NYC Thursday, April 6.
She said that a lot of her work on her forthcoming book involves her "wrestling with" why misogyny played such a large role in her loss.
"I'm doing pretty well, all things considered".
Regarding the WikiLeaks disclosure of stolen emails from the personal account of her campaign chairman, John Podesta, she said it "played a much bigger role than I think many people yet understand".
"I will put it this way: As a person I'm ok. You layer on the first woman president over that, and I think that some people - women included - had some problems". "That has to be admitted", she said. "Recently, photos have been making the rounds on social media showing groups of men in Washington making decisions about women's health - decisions to strip away coverage for pregnancy and maternity care, or limit access to reproductive health care around the globe".
In her first interview since she lost, Clinton said she "wrestles" with the fact that her gender did influence the results. "I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House, seems to be pursuing", she said, on his policies. And I'll tell you something else I prepared for: "being president'". "By the time they finished with me, I was Typhoid Mary". Just days after testifying before a grand jury in the Monica Lewinsky case, President Bill Clinton launched cruise missiles against an al-Qaeda site in Afghanistan and the al-Shifa site in Sudan. I think he had his desire to destabilize us and others. "My favorite GIF on the Internet is the dogs sitting around the table, saying, 'Next, let's discuss feline health, '" she said.
