Stomach virus forces Clinton to skip Friends of Syria meeting

Sidelined by a stomach virus, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will skip the Friends of Syria meeting in Morocco on Wednesday, her spokesman said.

Deputy Secretary William Burns will go in Clinton's place to the meeting in Marrakech.

"We will let you know when she shakes this bug and resumes a public schedule," said spokesman Philippe Reinnes.

      Chris, you got your break when Romney was beat. Now go back to Fox and wish you could comment on how you wish you r parents would save the country Social Security money by shooting themselves in head. Too bad Fox doesnt believe in freedom of the press where you could say that

    Hope she feels better. But this meeting should be called the enemies of Syria not the friends of Syria. To be honest the meeting Clinton was going to attend should be called the friends of the Islamic terrorists who are killing the innocents in Syria and destroying the country. Those who they call themselves the friends of Syria are funding, equipping and training the Islamic militias (Islamic brothers and Al-Qaida) to destroy Syria. Very sad and very shame.

    I would hope the old mega-bltch dies and goes to hell, but I wouldn't even wish that on the devil. But then again, the two of them might make good company. Afterall, she's married to a devil now.

      Disgusting comment which reflects more on you than on Hillary. Don't wish evil on people. Remember that what goes around, comes around.

    I hope the old mega-bltch croaks and goes to hell. She's married to a devil now, so she and Satan should make good company.
