VVIP Visitor

We get so many important people coming through Kabul that the term "VIP visitor" is no longer sufficiently descriptive, so we've had to add the term "VVIP visitor" for the really high-ranking types. I wish I was kidding.

Anyway, somehow the Embassy Public Affairs Section decided that the picture of the Secretary of State actually shaking my hand didn't make the cut for public distribution. But this picture just moments before did. It was a pleasure to meet Secretary Clinton, however briefly. Sadly, discretion indicates that I should refrain from further commentary here.

(For those who actually pay attention to the Secretary's travel schedule, this was a couple weeks ago at this point.)

you are so fancy! I cannot believe you shook Sec. Clinton's hand. Did you ask her about her daughter's wedding???
