Assessing Secretary Clinton's Trip to Africa

Friday, August 14, 2009

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ends her 11-day trip across Africa today with a stop in the nation of Cape Verde. The State Department calls Clinton’s Africa trip a success, but her critics brush it off as little more than a “goodwill listening tour." Jendayi Frazer, former assistant secretary of state for Africa under the Bush administration, helps The Takeaway assess the significance of Clinton's trip.

To the Takeaway:

Of all the Africa "experts" to bring in to discuss Secretary Clinton's recent African trip, why bring in someone so obviously partisan? Why bring in someone from the Bush administration who is clearly going to be overly critical? Aren't there other, non-partisan voices that can be heard? Is the Takeway trying to be purposefully antagonistic towards Secretary Clinton? Are you NPR or Fox?
