A curious statement from Hillary Clinton

She made a peculiar claim today (h/t pogge):

Clinton went further on Tuesday, saying Iran's program threatens to dash hope of a nuclear-free Middle East.

"If Iran gets a nuclear weapon, that hope disappears," she said, "because then other countries which feel threatened by Iran will say to themselves, 'If Iran has a nuclear weapon, I better get one, too, in order to protect my people.' "

My bold. No doubt Ms. Clinton knows very well that the Middle East probably hasn't been nuclear free for a long time, but I guess there are things you just don't talk about in her position.
