President Putin has ordered the release of a single Hillary Clinton email from the stash of over ten thousand emails being held by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR).
Above all, the mission of the U.S. Department of State is to advance the national interests of the United States and its people.
Everything the Department does supports this goal—
- training journalists,
- signing a treaty on trade relations,
- helping a developing country stand on its own feet
Every foreign policy decision by the President and the Secretary of State is made with the interests and protection of the American people in mind.
The Department’s mission statement appeared in its Financial Report for Fiscal Year 2010:
Advance freedom for the benefit of the American people and the international community by helping to build and sustain a more democratic, secure, and prosperous world composed of well-governed states that respond to the needs of their people, reduce widespread poverty, and act responsibly within the international system.
