Hillary Clinton: US response to Brussels must be ‘consistent with our values’


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks to TODAY by telephone in the wake of apparent terror attacks that have killed at least 26 in Belgium and says the number of casualties is “deeply distressing.” She says that we have to work more closely with European allies to track potential terrorists and that the “dream of a whole, free Europe” at peace is one that “should not be walked away from,” but we do have to be realistic about how people move from place to place. She acknowledges that Americans have a right to be frightened after San Bernardino but that experienced military leaders say techniques like waterboarding are not effective: Officials “do not need to resort to torture, but they are going to need more help.” She says “terrorists are not stupid” and are adapting: “We’ve got to work this through consistent with our values.”
