Heard Around the Hillary-Sphere and other News
I’ve got a few minutes to toss up a short post, so here are a few links about our Secretary of State and a few general foreign policy links:
~Here’s a photo of Secretary Clinton enjoying a boat trip on Godhaab’s Inlet, during their Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting in Nuuk, Greenland:
~It turns out there is more than one doctored Situation Room photo where Secretary Clinton has been erased from history.
~Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has harshly condemned the worsening violence in Syria.
~China, not surprisingly, has downplayed Secretary Clinton’s remarks condemning China’s pathetic human rights abuses.
~A host of human rights groups have sent a letter to Secretary Clinton urging her to support efforts to convene a special session of the UN Human Rights Council in order to address the deplorable human rights abuses taking place in Bahrain.
~On a similar topic, here’s a realistic take on Palestinian unity (minus the fear-mongering).
~And just to get an idea of the kinds of crowds that surround Secretary Clinton wherever she goes- this is a video someone obviously took on a cell phone when she made an unannounced visit to a shopping district in Italy. The video quality is no good and you can’t really see her because there are so many people trying to get a glimpse of her!
I don’t think there is any other person in this country, as Secretary of State, that would generate that kind of interest just walking down the street.
Are there any Hillary news stories that have caught your eye? Or any news stories on any subject, foreign or domestic? Feel free to put them in the comment section.
Ok, back to work for me! I hope everyone is having a lovely Friday afternoon!
