It's not unusual for U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to speak in front of a large crowd, filled with reporters shouting questions. On this day, though, students and faculty were asking the questions—not reporters. Clinton was visiting the Carnegie Mellon Qatar campus for a town hall-style meeting with an audience of more than 600. She fielded questions about nuclear weapons in Iran, the Israeli-Palestinian situation, and her role in the implementation of President Barack Obama's agenda. Many of her answers, particularly about Iran, were picked up by media outlets worldwide.
