WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the Polish leaders who were killed in a plane crash Saturday leave behind "a legacy that will live forever."
Clinton visited the Polish embassy in Washington on Sunday to sign a condolence book commemorating the deaths of Poland's president, Lech Kaczynski, and dozens of other Polish political, military and religious leaders in the plane crash in Russia.
The secretary told Robert Kupiecki, Poland's ambassador to the United States, that Polish Americans as well as "every American who admires what Poland has built" are joining his nation in mourning.
Clinton promised that the U.S. would work with Poland "to build that future that the people on that plane gave their lives for."
