Hillary Clinton as President would make the USA less safe

I assumed it was true before, but now that I’ve read this article from the Wall Street Journal I know it is true. If Hillary Clinton succeeds in her quest to become the next President our country will immediately become less safe. She is a politician in the worst sense. She makes decisions and holds opinions on issues primarily based on how it affects whether or not people will vote for her. He stance on issues are not based on commitment or personal values, they are basically a popularity contest. Here is an excerpt from the article:

The perpetrators were members of Armed Forces of National Liberation, FALN (the Spanish acronym), a clandestine terrorist group devoted to bringing about independence for Puerto Rico through violent means. . . . [On Aug. 11, 1999,] while Congress was on summer recess, the White House [Bill Clinton] quietly issued a press release announcing that the president was granting clemency to 16 imprisoned members of FALN. . . . Initial reports stated that Mrs. Clinton supported the clemencies, but when public reaction went negative she changed course, issuing a short statement three weeks after the clemencies were announced. . . . While the pardon scandals that marked Bill and Hillary Clinton’s final days in office are remembered as transactions involving cronies, criminals and campaign contributors, the FALN clemencies of 1999 should be remembered in the context of the increasing threat of domestic and transnational terrorism that was ramping up during the Clinton years of alleged peace and prosperity. . . . On the campaign trail, the Clintons like to say that Bill is merely supportive and enthusiastic, “just like all the other candidates’ spouses.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Returning Bill and Hillary Clinton to the White House would present the country with the unprecedented situation of a former and current president simultaneously occupying the White House, the practical implications of which have yet to be fully explored.
