WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the United States must continue sending diplomats and aid workers to the Arab world's emerging democracies, despite last month's deadly attack in Libya. <br />
Speaking to a Washington think tank, Clinton says the U.S. cannot retreat from dangerous countries and that Americans remain leaders in "hard places where America's interests and values are at stake."<br />
She called support for the Muslim world's democratic transitions a "strategic necessity."<br />
Clinton's address at the Center for Strategic and International Studies comes as Republicans are criticizing the Obama administration for the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton developed a blood clot in her head but did not suffer a stroke or neurological damage, her doctors said Monday. They say they are confident that she will make a full recovery.
Nearly a year after a stroke left him barely able to move the left side of his body, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk is expected to climb the 45 steps to the Senate's front door this week - a walk that's significant not just for Illinois' junior senator, but also for medical researchers and hundreds of thousands of stroke patients.
