According to several press reports, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has canceled her trip to Morocco this week for a meeting on the future of Syria’s opposition because of a stomach virus, the State Department said on today.
“Since she’s still under the weather, we’ll be staying put this week instead of heading to North Africa and the Middle East as originally planned,” State Department spokesman Philippe Reines said in a statement.
“In her place, Deputy Secretary Burns will travel to Marrakech for the Friends of the Syrian People meeting. We will let you know when she shakes this bug and resumes a public schedule,” he said.
Secretary Clinton, with 48,000,000 Americans sickened every year by food, your stomach virus is likely foodborne – call me. I would be happy to send you a t-shirt – see, www.occupyfoodsafety.com.
