“Creative” insult over Hillary’s report2009-01-20 13:13
Hillary Clinton's speech in the US Senate led to a scandal in Georgia.
On January 12 ex first lady appeared in the US Senate as the major candidate for the Secretary of State. By convention she presented her report at the Confirmation Hearing. According to the Georgian media Hillary announced total and unconditional support of Georgia's and Ukraine's authorities in their confrontation with Russia.
The whole day "First Channel", "Rustavi-2" and "Imedi" channels were trumpeting the good news: nearly the US Secretary of State is fiercely defending the presidents of Georgia and Ukraine from "Russia's imperial encroachments".
"The USA must offer considerable counteraction against the attempts of the Russians to confuse the neighboring states", - Hillary allegedly said. - Following the war between Georgia and Russia it is even more meaningful that for the democratic USA-friendly countries like Georgia and Ukraine the doors to NATO are always open. Any attempts to intimidate and Dmitry Medvedev's threats are inacceptable and the United States will never allow that...".
Georgia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Grigol Vashadze who apparently did not have any doubt on authenticity of these words, considered them a direct protection of Tbilisi's interests and expressed deep satisfaction calling Hillary Clinton's position "very important". According to Regnum IA he also accentuated her direct indication that "Russia is trying to have an effect on Georgia and Ukraine in different ways - political, military, energy and others" and the USA are not going to give way here.
On January 13 discussions on TV did not cease. The Georgian president's teammates and "court" politologists were restless convincing compatriots that the USA would not do without democratic Georgia. Clinton's speech was called a natural continuation of George Bush's administration line of strategic partnership with Georgia. However Tbilisi did not mention that an invitation to the White House new boss inauguration had been sent to Georgia's ex Ambassador with the UN Irakli Alasania who had turned to the opposition and is now believed to be number one presidential candidate.
The thunder came on January 14. "Alia" independent newspaper reprinted Hillary's 16-page translated shorthand report presented on the US Senate site. It turns out the text is smooth and well-oiled.
