Libyan opposition leaders to meet with Hillary in Paris today…

In Global News, Human Rights, Libya, Paris, United States on March 14, 2011 at 7:24 pm

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton arrived in Paris Monday to meet with Libyan opposition figures and European leaders to try and make plans to stop Moammar Gadhafi. She will meet the Libyan opposition figures as the Obama administration makes its first high-level contact with foes of Moammar Gadhafi.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will continue on to Egypt and Tunisia in her first trip to address the Arab revolutions. But the window for foreign assistance to Libya is quickly closing.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set to meet with Libyan rebel leaders in Paris today in her first overseas trip to address Arab world revolutions since the ousting of former Tunisian president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Her visit comes as the Obama administration shows wariness about offering support to Libyan rebels and Col. Muammar Qaddafi’s forces make surprising gains.

In Paris, Clinton will meet with Libyan opposition figures and meet several European counterparts to discuss military intervention in Libya, the Associated Press reports. France has already recognized the Libyan opposition interim council and, together with Britain, is drafting a no-fly zone resolution to put forward at the United Nations Security Council. But the US has been more reticent to throw its full support behind the rebels.

AP notes that the US regard for rebels “may well depend” on Clinton’s meetings today, since “the [rebel] council’s composition and aims largely remain a mystery to American officials.”

Clinton is due to visit Tunisia and Egypt after Paris to express support for the ousters of autocratic governments there. “We have an enormous stake in ensuring that Egypt and Tunisia provide models for the kind of democracy that we want to see,” Clinton told lawmakers last week, warning them about Iran’s attempts to gain influence across the region, according to the Agence France-Presse.

Even though the Arab League offered a strongly-worded statement of support this weekend for an internationally backed no-fly zone over Libya, saying that the Libyan government had “lost its sovereignty,” Obama on Sunday showed hesitation in committing the US to military action in Libya.

“Anytime I send United States forces into a potentially hostile situation, there are risks involved and there are consequences. And it is my job as president to make sure that we have considered all those risks,” he told reporters, according to the Associated Press. “It’s also important from a political perspective to, as much as possible, maintain the strong international coalition that we have right now.”

The Obama administration has expressed concern about a military that is already spread thin and about being perceived as meddling in another country’s affairs. It has insisted that any military intervention have UN approval and support from the Arab League.

Meanwhile, Qaddafi’s forces have made surprisingly strong gains against rebels, even advancing toward the opposition “capital” of Benghazi in eastern Libya.

After pummeling the key oil town of Ras Lanuf last week, pro-Qaddafi forces moved east to claim Brega over the weekend. Rebels say the next battle will be in Ajdabiya, a strategic town on a junction that leads to both the oil refineries of Tobruk and the self-made rebel stronghold of Benghazi, the Guardian reports.

Although the rebel forces commander said Qaddafi’s forces will face a difficult fight if they try to reclaim Ajdabiya, some members of the antigovernment forces seemed less confident, bemoaning a lack of assistance from other countries and discussing exit plans to Egypt.

According to the Washington Post, reporting from Tripoli, pro-government forces tout reclaiming of oil town Ras Lanuf and Brega as a significant gain. The rebel forces commanders claims his forces made a “strategic retreat” from Brega.

Col. Milad Hussein, an army spokesman, [said] that he did not anticipate a tough battle in Benghazi. He said that the government hopes to resolve the crisis “through reconciliation” with tribal leaders in eastern Libya but that the rebel movement is not proving to be a potent adversary.

“To deal with them you don’t need full-scale military action,” the Libyan spokesman said. “They are groups of people who, when you come to them, they just raise their hands and go. ”

On October 20th, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Former Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger will participate in the first of a series called “The Secretaries: Conversations on Diplomacy.”

Co-sponsored by HBO, the Conversation will enable the Secretaries to discuss the issues of the day and reflect on their experiences as America’s top diplomat. Michael Beschloss, an award-winning historian, will moderate the Conversation. New Foreign Service Officers, members of the Diplomatic Corps, current State Department employees and policy leaders will be present in the audience.

Discussion topics for the Conversation have also been suggested and promoted on The Sounding Board, the State Department’s internal online idea forum for domestic and overseas employees.

The event will also launch the 50th Anniversary Patrons of Diplomacy Initiative for the Diplomatic Reception Rooms at the Department of State.

For fifty years, the art of diplomacy has thrived in the State Department’s Diplomatic Reception Rooms against a stunning backdrop of American art and architecture from the time of our country’s founding and of its formative years. The historic suite of forty two rooms contains a museum-caliber collection of American fine and decorative art, including 5,000 objects from the period of 1750-1825. In these rooms, the United States has signed treaties and conducted summit negotiations, hosted peace talks and facilitated trade agreements.

The Patrons of Diplomacy Initiative will ensure that the Rooms and collection continue to provide an extraordinary backdrop for American diplomacy.

Hillary Clinton Honored In Atlanta By King Center

Sunday, January 18, 2009

ATLANTA — Mere days before Barack Obama is set to make history as the nation’s first black president, the woman who battled him for the Democratic nomination was honored by a leading civil rights organization. Hillary Rodham Clinton, U.S. senator from New York and secretary of state designee, received the “Salute to Greatness” award at a fundraiser Saturday night for the King Center in Atlanta.

The event came just before the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday, marking what would have been the slain civil right’s leader’s 80th birthday.Clinton echoed King’s theme of service and called on Americans to rally behind Obama, the man who defeated her for the Democratic nomination for the White House. “This is an all hands on deck moment for America,” Clinton said.

She praised Obama as “a young man of such enormous promise” and said his election brought King’s dream within reach. “The election of Barack Obama is a big step closer to the realization of that dream but that doesn’t let us off the hook does it?”

Clinton said.She said the nation still faces challenges in providing health care and economic opportunity to all. And she recalled being transfixed when at age 13 she heard King speak on a chilly January evening in Chicago. Clinton was introduced Saturday night by former Atlanta mayor and United Nations ambassador Andrew Young.

Caroline, The RED QUEEN

In Barack Obama, bias, Caroline Kennedy, Gov Patterson., Hillary Clinton, nepotism, New York Senate Seat, official announcement, Rise Hillary Rise, Secretary of State on December 10, 2008 at 12:54 pm

queen-of-hearts-232Caroline doesn’t just express interest through the grapevine.. as the customary way of showing you “might” be interested in a date, buying a car or hinting through a friend: ….

“You Hate Surprise Birthday Partys!”

It’s called diplomacy… finesse- having a certain amount of cachet, savoir-faire, selling ice to the Eskimos (no offense Sarah Palin) with an astute understanding of the importance of impeccable social skills…

Can you tell? As much as I loved JFK and RFK… loved what they stood for and what they accomplished in their all too brief lives… no matter what… if they rubbed us the wrong way or said something we weren’t too happy about; at least they would meet the challenge spending time convincing us of their point of view and wouldn’t quit until we got it….. It’s the art of persuasion, personified in a politician who believes and has a vision, a better idea of how to get things done for creating a better quality of life for the world… [sheesh]

Fast forward 50 years later and the jaded remnants of what once was thought of as the vaunted idyllic world of Camelot- our dreams of Camelot are no more.. the beautiful child, Caroline, we watched grow up alongside her younger brother affectionately called…John-John… has raised her hand as if in the persona of the “Red Queen” and demanded she be considered above ALL others for the position of the state of NY Senate seat. Very soon to be dispatched by Governor Paterson’s appointment replacing the vacancy created by Senator Clinton’s “RISE, Hillary, RISE” to the ascendancy of the Secretary of State position!

The sweetness and light has gone out of the little blond headed child who’s love for her father, no one can deny. And been replaced with a silent arrogance of…

I’M CAROLINE KENNEDY – I’m here and I want that…

Oh, well.. honey, read some of your mother’s books. She would be rightly mortified at your behavior indicative of how well or unwell YOU turned out. Yes, we understand the social grooming and political lessons your brother John received from his ever graceful, societal super star, your mother.

I have to ask, where were you when your mom was instructing John in the ways of the world and how he has to earn his own way and prove himself by his own merit? How many times did she reinforce to you, just because you come from a family of privilege doesn’t give you the Right to trample and ride over people when you want something that is an open entitlement to anyone!

Do you realize the damage you’ve done to yourself bursting the public’s perceived bubble of this lovable responsible child grown into this pushy broad with name recognition that isn’t about to accept the word “NO” — If in fact, Gov Paterson, possesses a modicum of sense and sensibility, recognizes New Yorkers need and require a Work Horse NOT a Show Horse to steward one of the most complicated states in the Union through the next of the most financially critical two years?

I didn’t think so…

Go to your room with a knapsack full of books written by your mom… you might take her advise and return a better person for all her insights and experience expressed in a way that may resonate with you in the ways of humanity, the human spirit and politics as an animal you may not yet understand or control.

RISE.. Hillary… RISE.. as the failed msnbc propaganda goes to work..

In Barack Obama, feminism, official announcement, Rise Hillary Rise, Secretary of State on December 2, 2008 at 3:23 am

Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, Rachal Maddow, Mika Brzezinski, Arianna Huffington, all of them should resign or be fired. The overpaid over exposed pundits of propaganda couldn’t deliver Hillary DOA-to the Democrats!

This pathetic group of lobotomized news readers failed to convince the American people Hillary was unfit for office, any office. Eighteen million strong remain standing behind their girl and I can’t even conceive her monumental star quality will lie stagnant in the wake of a World in a state of perilous crisis.

Sandy Berger, a life long friend and former national security adviser of the Clintons had this to say :

“I think this is a sensational appointment,” said Samuel R. “Sandy” Berger, who served as Bill Clinton‘s national security adviser. “She brings intellectual firepower. She brings a high energy and a credibility in the world, which will be very valuable. Obama has shown great leadership in putting this team together.”

Hillary’s good friend and mentor Madeline Albright seems pleased Obama saw the light:

“She is very keen on having America’s leadership restored in a way where we are respected, where we are capable of talking to countries we don’t like,” Albright said. “That would be her modus operandi, and it fits with what Obama has said.”

However, my worry is this … Obama has a reputation for throwing people under the bus when he feels he no longer needs their influence or skill to further accomplish a step-up. The proof in this statement is evident in the frowning, seething resentment roiling from the Far Left.

The MSNBC may be watching and waiting with malicious intent to entrap Hillary and finally put this thorny firebrand to rest … Well, so are 18 million prs of eyes watching and documenting every step they take if they think we’ve gone quietly into the night … Rise Hillary Rise …

Dr. Maya Angelou: “Rise, Hillary. Rise.”

” You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.”
