State Dept.: Do not join flotilla

The U.S. State Department on Friday ramped up its warnings urging Americans not to join other activists in a flotilla, expected to sail soon, aimed at challenging the maritime blockade of the Gaza strip. …

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters Friday that she didn’t think the plan “is useful or productive or helpful to the people of Gaza.”

“We have certainly encouraged that American citizens not participate in the flotilla,” she said, “and we are urging that all precautions be taken to avoid any kind of confrontation.”
