Clinton, Circumcision, Confused....

Here is what always struck me as blatant hypocrisy. The support of the USA for circumcision and at the same time condemning female genital cutting. Here is what Clinton said recently.

“We cannot excuse this as a cultural tradition. There are many cultural traditions that used to exist in many parts of the world that are no longer acceptable. We cannot excuse it as a private matter because it has very broad public implications. It has no medical benefits. It is, plain and simply, a human rights violation”

Pretty much the same can be said about circumcision, only that Clinton supports this in Africa to fight HIV. Oh my.
