Clinton uses WikiLeaks disclosures to draw a laugh

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton knows how to try to get a laugh from a public embarrassment.

 Ever since the website WikiLeaks started posting State Department memos - known as cables - and other classified government documents, U.S. officials have been turning a bit red as secret assessments of world leaders have become public.

She found time for a little light turn about WikiLeaks during a reception she hosted Saturday night at the State Department for recipients of this year's Kennedy Center Honors - who include Oprah Winfrey and Paul McCartney.

Clinton said she found it extraordinary to greet so many talented people. She then said: `I am writing a cable about it, which I'm sure you'll find soon on your closest website."
