(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Despite her less-than-stellar diplomacy record, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—who helped lead the U.S. into several wars—is slated to teach classes in foreign policy at Columbia University, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.
Among other fiascos, Clinton came under fire for her inadequate response to a siege on the U.S. embassy on Benghazi, which resulted in the death of a U.S. diplomat and three Americans.
The failed Democrat presidential nominee will now teach a foreign policy class called “Inside the Situation Room” with Keren Yarhi–Milo, an international relations professor at the Ivy League school in New York City.
Columbia made the announcement in a recent statement, with an accompanying video.
According to the university, “it is more important than ever for future policymakers to understand why and how foreign policy decisions are made.”
Students will focus on the varying aspects of foreign-policy management and how it intermingles with domestic policy.
In the class, “students will be taught how to analyze and understand the complex interplay between individual psychology, domestic politics, public opinion, bureaucracy, the international environment, and other factors which feed into decisions about foreign policy—from crisis diplomacy to the use of force, signaling and perception, intelligence and its analysis, the deployment of other instruments of statecraft, and more.”
Students will also learn “to promote their interests abroad.”
Specifically, the course will cover topics ranging from “experience, gender, personality, emotions,” to “decisions about whether and how to use force” when it comes to foreign policy.
While left-wing academics have sought to rehabilitate Clinton’s legacy of failure, she continues to be the subject of ridicule for her critics, both at home and abroad.
On Wednesday, the “Taliban Public Relations Department” fired back at Clinton after she posted a video promoting education for girls in Afghanistan, Valiant News reported.

“You spent $700m in our country trying to teach women and girls that there are 140 different genders,” the Taliban tweeted in response.
“No wonder you lost to the orange gangster,” they continued, alluding to Donald Trump’s defeat of Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign. “You left a huge mess behind in Afghanistan, just like your husband did with that dress.”
Clinton is not the only disgraced public figure to take refuge in academia recently.
After being fired by CNN for being too over-the-top even for the far-left propaganda network, former “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter secured a spot at Harvard University teaching about “threats to democracy.”
And after being primaried and ousted by her own party for betraying conservative values and offering cover to then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan Jan. 6 committee, former Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming recently took a post teaching at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics.
