Clinton: Era of Carrots Has Got to End

Senator Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) continued her criticism of the Bush administration's management of the Iraq War in her questioning of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, at the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday.

Clinton questioned whether the FY07 supplemental budget and the FY08 budget would sufficiently fund U.S. troops in Iraq. She also called on Iraqi government to step up its efforts, saying "the era of carrots has got to end," referring what she called the "blank check" the U.S. have given the Iraqi government.

At the end of her remarks, Clinton questioned the administration plan for Darfur. She asked if the administration has considered implementing a no fly zone over the region and launching punitive strikes on Sudanese planes.

Below is a video of Clinton's remarks.
