Hillary Clinton to visit Adelaide
Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2012 4:26 pm
Great news in my opinion.
ONE of the Adelaide's largest joint security operations will protect US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her planned visit next week.
Sections of the CBD, including North Tce and King William St, are likely to be locked down for the visit, which was revealed on adelaidenow yesterday.
Planning for the massive operation to protect the second most powerful woman in the world has been under way for the past week.
US embassy officials and security specialists have been working with Australian Federal Police, senior SA Police and STAR Group officers to plan the operation.
The visit is expected to be confirmed by White House officials as early as today.
Sources said the initial planning indicated the operation would be similar to when US Defence Minister Donald Rumsfeld and other defence officials were in Adelaide for the Australia-US Ministerial Meeting (AUSMIN) in 2005.
