Washington (CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made light of the recent WikiLeaks controversy at a dinner Saturday night for the Kennedy Center honorees.
She noted the full "breadth and depth of American artistry," and then said:
"I am writing a cable about it, which I'm sure you'll find soon on your closest website."
The website WikiLeaks began posting the first of more than 250,000 State Department documents last week, forcing Clinton to reach out to officials in countries all over the world to try to reduce fallout from the document dump.
The Kennedy Center honors individuals annually for their contributions to the arts. This year's honorees include Paul McCartney and Oprah Winfrey. The president and first lady will host the honorees at a reception at the White House Sunday afternoon before the awards gala at the Kennedy Center Sunday night.
