Woman’s Touch

In Around the World on December 6, 2010 at 3:11 am

In light of the notorious Wikileaks, a site that leaks information on government and corporate activities in order to keep things transparent and accountable, which has recently released some 200 or more diplomatic cables and has been taking up much of the news’ attention, I thought I mention how Secretary of State is said to be single handedly smoothing things over – at best she can at least.  Security breaches and wounded pride are serious topics of conversation and difficult to forget so easily among foreign diplomats.  It’s like having your journal entries released to everyone you know, and of course we know journals are for venting and people we know don’t always meet our approval.

In this case it’s much more dire of a predicament because this could affect relationships between countries, openness of diplomats, how intelligence is gathered…and then unknown implications that are tied into the necessity of cordial relations between the above mentioned issues. 

In an article from the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/05/world/05diplo.html?_r=1&hp

The job of damage control has fallen mainly to her. President Obama has not called any foreign leaders about the disclosures. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, meanwhile, has been reserved even though the cables were believed to be purloined from a Department of Defense computer system by an army private, Bradley Manning, who is now in a military jail.

Mrs. Clinton’s reaction to shouldering the burden has been every bit as artful as the cables that have landed her in so much trouble.

Anyways I just wanted to show how a female politician was doing her job and doing it well, good thing women are better at communicating
