Clinton Warns Iran Over Meddling in Persian Gulf

PARIS -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that the U.S. will bring "unique capabilities to bear" in Libya as a global coalition began enforcing a U.N.-authorized no-fly zone to protect civilians from Moammar Gadhafi's forces. The world will not "sit idly by," she said at a news conference, amid fears that Gadhafi will commit "unspeakable atrocities" against his people. "We have every reason to fear that left unchecked Gadhafi would commit unspeakable atrocities," she told reporters after an international conference at which world powers launched enforcement of the...

US Condemns Crackdowns on Mideast Protests

WASHINGTON -- Arab and Muslim leaders facing pro-democracy protests need to lead the way rather than resist reform, a senior U.S. diplomat said Sunday while condemning violent crackdowns against demonstrators in Libya, Algeria and Yemen. Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the Obama administration was "very concerned" about reports that Libyan security forces had fired on peaceful protesters in the eastern city of Benghazi. A Libyan physician told The Associated Press that at least 200 had been killed in six days of demonstrations against the regime of Moammar Gadhafi....

Clinton Blasts Leadership of Afghanistan, Pakistan

NEW YORK -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton today blasted the leadership in both Afghanistan and Pakistan for the poor economic growth, corruption, energy shortages and political instability that are plaguing their people. "Last month in Doha -- actually, now two months ago, in December -- just before the protests began in Tunisia and Egypt, I warned that the region's foundations were sinking into the sand," Clinton told an audience at the Asia Society during a lengthy review of U.S. policy on the two countries. "In Afghanistan and Pakistan, conflict is blasting the foundations apa...

Clinton in Yemen to Press Counterterror Efforts

SANAA, Yemen -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton flew into Yemen on Tuesday on an unannounced visit to shore up and repair damaged ties with a fragile and problematic ally that is fast becoming the main focus of American counterterrorism efforts. Under tight security, Clinton landed in the capital of Sanaa, where she was pressing Yemeni leaders to do more to crack down on extremism that has bled into the West with attacks such as those thought inspired by U.S.-Yemeni radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. He is believed to be hiding in Yemen and is subject to a U.S. kill-or-capture ord...

Hillary Clinton Quitting Politics After Secretary of State Gig?

(Dec. 3) -- That's all she wrote? Forget about the idea of ever seeing Hillary Rodham Clinton become president. In fact, after her current job as secretary of state, Clinton says she may never seek public office again. Clinton made that revelation at a town hall meeting in Bahrain on Friday, CBS News reported. "I think I will serve as secretary of state as my last public position," Clinton said in response to a question on whether she planned to give President Barack Obama a primary challenger in 2012 or had aspirations to step in as his vice presidential running mate. So what will Clin...

Clinton Calls Document Leak an Attack on the World

WASHINGTON (Nov. 29) -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday the leak of hundreds of thousands of secret diplomatic documents is an attack not only on the United States but also the international community. In her first public comments since the weekend release of the classified State Department cables, Clinton said that online whistleblower Wikileaks acted illegally in posting the material. She said the Obama administration was taking "aggressive steps to hold responsible those who stole this information." "This disclosure is not just an attack on America's foreign policy i...

Clinton: Not All Americans Wear Bikinis and Wrestle

(Nov. 9) -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton wants to clear up a few misconceptions: Not all Americans look like the Kardashians and strut around in bikinis. "If you look at American TV as much of the rest of the world does, you would think we all went around wrestling and wearing bikinis," she told the comedy Australian team of Hamish and Andy in an interview this week at the University of Melbourne. "I mean, that's what you would think we spend our entire day doing," the former first lady said, laughing. A transcript of the humorous exchange is posted on the Department of State...

Clinton Heads to Asia to Assure China's Neighbors

WASHINGTON (Oct. 27) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton is heading for Asia and the Pacific to cement ties with some of China's nervous neighbors, part of the Obama administration's efforts to counter Beijing's increasingly assertive stance. The secretary of state leaves Wednesday on a two-week, seven-nation tour designed in part to allay regional concerns that as China's influence rises, Washington is retreating from its traditional role as the dominant Pacific Rim power. Clinton begins in Hawaii, where she'll discuss regional security with top brass from the U.S. Pacific Command and Japan's new for...
