'Unhelpful' but not untrue
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reacted to Newt Gingrich's remarks about the 'Palestinians' being an 'invented people.' She called them 'unhelpful.' She did not call them untrue
Asked by PBS Newshour Executive Editor Jim Lehrer at an event on economic innovation whether Gingrich's comment about the Palestinians being an "invented people" was helpful, Clinton replied: "No."
"I think he recognized that, from what I read," she added, speaking at an event on Innovation and the Global Marketplace. "I think he realized that was, you know, one of those innovative moments that happen."
The truth is difficult to face, isn't it? But facing it is clarifying.
