Clinton declares war on paperwork in State Department
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has declared war on paperwork in her agency.
Clinton announced Wednesday that she has dispatched her staff to eliminate the mind-numbing reports routinely required of U.S. diplomats, acknowledging that most of the thousands of reports ordered up every year "are never read."
"All too often, you and your officers are tied to desks fulfilling hundreds of reporting requirements mandated by both Congress and the [State] Department," Clinton told a group of ambassadors gathered in Washington for the Global Chiefs of Mission conference.
