Hillary Clinton May Not Be in the Building But She’s Still Working

July 29, 2010

Secretary Clinton has most of the week off to prepare for her daughter Chelsea’s wedding- and by “off” I mean not-in-the-State-Department-building-but-still-working-24/7. She has still been issuing statements and attending key foreign policy/security meetings with the White House via secure link:

President Barack Obama met on Thursday with his national security team to discuss Afghanistan and Pakistan. The 7th such regular meeting on the subject came as the government pressed ahead with an investigation into the leak of tens of thousands of classified documents about the war in Afghanistan.

Taking part in the meeting in the White House Situation Room, either in person or by video link, were some 22 civilian and military officials, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Vice President Joe Biden and CIA Director Leon Panetta.

President Obama’s national security adviser, General James Jones, was there. Participating from afar were the new U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, and the U.S. ambassadors to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

White House spokesman Gibbs said the regular Afghanistan-Pakistan session discussed the recent strategic dialogue Secretary of State Clinton held in Pakistan, and U.S. efforts to support Pakistani military actions against violent extremists in Pakistan.

The meeting also focused on what the Obama administration calls the success of the recent Kabul conference and steps to strengthen governance and pursue the re-integration of Taliban forces.

That’s dedication.

    With all the secret service protection, oversight of air space I wonder how much money the taxpayer will be putting into this wedding?

    If they want privacy then maybe they shouldn’t act like they are goddamn royalty. Their daughter is not a celebrity or public figure, she’s a corporate shill.

    I love watching the clintons try to act like normal people. They just cant do it because they are such entitled snobs. But leave it to this website to act like their shit don’t stink. Good old limosine liberals!

      The Clintons have never acted like entitled snobs, but I wouldn’t expect a right-winger to understand that. It’s the media who’s making a huge fuss over the wedding.

    Amaricanbill: They are paying for the extra security measures, not the taxpayers.
