Rome, Italy Here She Comes!

April 29, 2011

Secretary Clinton has some travel in her near future!:

Secretary of State Clinton will travel to Rome, Italy May 4-6 to participate in a meeting of the Libya Contact Group. The Rome meeting will build on the last Contact Group meeting held in Doha and will allow the United States to discuss with its international partners the ongoing implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1970 and 1973.

Secretary Clinton will also conduct a series of bilateral meetings, including Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, President Giorgio Napolitano, and Foreign Minister Franco Frattini. Assistant Secretary Philip H. Gordon and Assistant Secretary Jeffery Feltman will accompany the Secretary on this trip.

You heard it here first!

    This is really OT but I didn’t know where to put it, I thought the photo bomb wouldn’t be the right place. I thought Thain, Stacy, Tovah and maybe Carolyn might be interested in this:

    I bring it up because the US media isn’t reporting on the brutal crackdown taking place over the past few days by the IDF in Bi’lin. It really is horrific- shooting steel tipped rubber bullets at peaceful protesters, tear gas, arresting children to threaten the parents. I really wish Secretary Clinton would acknowledge some of this. It’s just getting worse there.

    It’s interesting how Ethan Bronner, who is Jerusalem bureau chief at the NYT, never seems to leave his office and go into the territories to report on any of this. I would really like someone to answer this question- why doesn’t ANYONE in the U.S. media report on the brutal crackdown by Israel on the peaceful resistance? What about the Arab Spring? We hear a lot anytime an Israeli Jew is killed and we hear a lot about Hamas. Honestly, why aren’t they reporting on ANY of this. Only Israeli and Arab media does.

    BTW, 972 is a great Israeli blog
