Inside the State Department:
PAKISTAN IN CRISIS
As President Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was one of the most high-profile women on the planet. In this revealing film, National Geographic crews were given access to Clinton’s inner circle for nearly half-a-year. During that time, we followed ‘Madam Secretary’ across the globe in her vital work negotiating on behalf of the United States.
Supported by some 60,000 staff, Clinton clocks over 140,000 flying miles while enduring a grueling schedule in which ‘standard’ workdays often exceed 20 hours. Her travels take her from the UN General Assembly in Manhattan to diplomatically sensitive trips to Pakistan, Jerusalem, Cairo and Afghanistan.
Along the way, viewers witness the extraordinary lengths undertaken to ensure each visit is a success, from security to special flight operations, and take a front row seat as Clinton engages with foreign leaders, civilians and the press.
Featuring in-depth interviews with security staff, foreign diplomats and Mrs. Clinton herself, this is politics directly from the frontline.
