CNN’s Amanpour Mocks Hillary Shovel Photo: ‘Trying to Unearth an ISIS Strategy?

CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour took a swipe at Hillary Clinton Thursday over a photo the former secretary of state posted on Twitter.

The photo shows Clinton along with current Secretary of State John Kerry and the four other former U.S. chief diplomats with shovels in their hands. The group was in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday for the groundbreaking ceremony of a new museum.

“I’ve broken bread with all of my fellow #SecStates but we’ve never broken ground!” Clinton tweeted with the photo. “Great visit to State Department yesterday.”

To that, Amanpour retweeted the photo with the comment, “Trying to unearth an ISIS strategy?”

Amanpour’s tweet has been retweeted many times.

ISIS is the Islamic terrorist group based in Iraq and Syria which claims responsibility for the videos showing the beheadings of two American journalists within the past few weeks. President Barack Obama has authorized air strikes against ISIS in Iraq but memorably said in late August that his administration does not have an overall strategy to confront the terrorist group in Syria.
