ASTANA, Kazakhstan (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday kicked off a four-nation diplomatic tour dogged by the WikiLeaks disclosure of U.S. diplomatic cables, an act she called an assault on the international community.
WikiLeaks' release of more than a quarter million diplomatic files came up as Clinton fielded a series of questions from an audience of students and civic leaders at Eurasian University after meeting privately with several Kazakh women's rights and political leaders on her first visit to this Central Asian nation.
Only one of the 17 questions was about WikiLeaks, although another questioner asked Clinton's views about striking the proper balance between Internet freedom and protection of information and privacy.
"I've been thinking about it a lot lately," she said, apparently referring to Obama administration anxiety over massive posting of sensitive State Department documents. She did not get more explicit about the WikiLeaks case until another member of her audience asked directly what she thought about the matter.
