Secretary Clinton, seen above with Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Dipu Moni on Sept. 16, will be giving a speech Friday morning at the Brookings Institution. I’ve RSVPed to attend, so I’ll report back what I can. The speech is supposed to outline the United States’ goals for next week’s U.N. General Assembly session. In today’s press briefing, Clinton’s spokesman said she would discuss nonproliferation, Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan, food security, and violence against women and girls.
Other Clinton news:
•Clinton says the United States will discuss nukes during talks with Iran on Oct. 1. Iran is saying that won’t happen.
•Matt Latimer, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush, says that Bush thought Clinton would end up as the Democratic presidential nominee. In GQ magazine, Latimer claims that Bush said the following about Clinton:
“Wait till her fat keister is sitting at this desk,” he once said (except he didn’t say “keister”).
•Clinton is concerned about Venezuela’s arms purchases.
•Is Clinton scheduling a visit to Pakistan for this fall?
•Clinton will lead a U.S. delegation at a conference on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the first time the United States has attended the biennial conference since 1999.
