Former President Bill Clinton has told an audience at the Truman Library in Independence that Harry Truman remains relevant in the 21st century. Clinton was speaking at a 50th anniversary celebration of the library and museum.
He called Truman "brutally tough," but said he also was – as he put it – "refreshingly bipartisan."
Clinton did not specifically address current American foreign policy other than noting Clinton would want to stay the course in Afghanistan and would see Iraq as a civil war. He told the crowd that finding a solution in Iraq would be difficult.
