Clinton foreign policy memoir distances her from ObamaBeginning a dry run for her seemingly inevitable U.S. presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has put some space between herself and Barack Obama on foreign policy in her latest memoir.CBS News, whose parent company owns the book's publisher Simon and Schuster, obtained a copy and leaked several passages Thursday.The book promises a treasure trove of details about her tenure, and Clinton launches a busy tour beginning next week in support of the book -- but also of her 2016 prospects.The Syria episode illustrates a key break between Clinton, who lost the Democratic nomination to Obama in 2008, and a president whose popularity has plummeted in his second term.Clinton said she was convinced that arming and training moderate Syrian rebels was the best way to turn the tide against strongman Bashar Assad.In passages that directly relate to today's headlines, Clinton addresses the State Department's efforts to secure the freedom of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was released into US hands Saturday in an exchange that saw five Taliban leaders transferred out of the Guantanamo military prison.
