In an interview with The Atlantic, Hillary Clinton criticizes Obama administration foreign policy approach, particularly a failure to intervene more vigorously in Syria.

The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg asked Clinton about the Obama administration's foreign affairs motto, "Don't do stupid shit."

“Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle," Clinton responded.

She acknowledged that Obama was “trying to communicate to the American people that he’s not going to do something crazy." But she added that this wasn't the best approach.

Candidate Clinton doesn't intend to get hung with the wimp label.
