US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been targeted by anti-US protesters during a visit to the Philippines.

The cavalcade she was travelling in was splattered with red paint by activists angry at US involvement in the country.

The “protesters” (which the OWSers would no doubt characterize as “peaceful”) who hurled paint at the Secretary of State’s motorcade were apparently protesting the SOFA (Status of Forces Agreement) in place with the Republic of the Phillipines for U. S. Military Forces stationed there.
