Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered remarks at the world premiere screening of "Inside the State Department" at the National Geographic Headquarters on October 25, 2010. The special program provides a behind-the-scenes perspective on the mission of the U.S. Department of State, Secretary Clinton's travels, and Department staff engaged in operations around the world.

Secretary Clinton said, "This is truly a tribute to the more than 60,000 people who work for the State Department around the world. Now, not all of them could fit into the movie, but without their service standing behind all the faces that you will see and the people that you'll meet, there are literally hundreds and thousands more who do every day what is necessary to protect America, to promote our values, advance our interests in every corner of the globe."

The Secretary continued, "...So for me, there is a great privilege and honor to be the 67th Secretary of State. I wish that this could have been done at an earlier time with others who served in my capacity because I think it's long overdue. Because we want to tell the story of the men and women of the State Department who serve you, the American public, every single day. We have really appreciated the chance to tell this story. It is part of our overall effort to elevate diplomacy and development alongside defense to make it clear that this is who we are and what we do.

"I'm delighted that I get a chance to see this for the first time with all of you, and again, I thank National Geographic for going inside the State Department and expanding the audience to all of America, and indeed, the world so that people know what it is that we are focused on and the mission that we are pursuing as we serve the country that we love."

"Inside the State Department" premieres Monday, November 8, 2010, at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST on the National Geographic Channel (NGC). Please visit natgeotv.com/state for more information. If you are in the United States, click here for more information.

I think this is amazing. No one can really understand how many people it takes to keep the state department run so smoothly. It is laudable for National Geographic to put on this display and The secretary was wonderful in her remarks.
