I’ve been swamped today, getting the July/August issue of FP finished and out the door. Due to lack of time, I’m just posting some photos of a barefoot, scarved Secretary Clinton touring Cairo’s Sultan Hassan Mosque. There’s also a video of the mosque tour at the bottom of this post. Nothing else for today.
