When pressed by Associated Press reporter Matt Lee at a Tuesday press conference, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was unable to name a single “tangible achievement” from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2010 Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review.
In 2009, Clinton announced the State Department would begin conducting routine performance reviews in the QDDR. The Pentagon reportedly uses a similar review process.
“Off the top of your head, can you just identify one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” Lee asked the spokeswoman.
“Well, Matt, obviously it’s an extensive, expansive topic—“ Psaki began before getting cut off.
“So, no,” Lee interrupted.
The reporter continued to ask for “just one” accomplishment that resulted from the 2010 QDDR, but he never got a straight answer.
