Hillary Clinton will discuss her memoir "Hard Choices" in a town hall meeting at the Newseum in Washington at 5 p.m. ET on June 17. The former secretary of state, senator and first lady will take questions from moderator Christiane Amanpour, CNN's Chief International Correspondent, and members of the audience. The town hall will be simulcast on CNN International and CNN en Espanol.
(CNN) – Hillary Clinton’s new book includes some inflammatory language about one of America’s closest allies, Israel, and its relationship with the Palestinian territories.
And Monday on CNN's Crossfire, co-host S.E. Cupp challenged Tracy Sefl from the pro-Clinton super PAC Ready for Hillary on the issue, calling the language a "doozy" of a gaffe.
Cupp asked Sefl, "Does (Hillary Clinton) owe Israel an apology for using the same language that Chris Christie used, then he had to apologize to pro-Israel voters and pro-Israel groups?”
In her memoir, “Hard Choices,” Clinton describes a 1981 trip to Israel with her husband. She writes: “When we left the city and visited Jericho, in the West Bank, I got my first glimpse of life under occupation for Palestinians, who were denied the dignity and self-determination that Americans take for granted.”
Sefl retorted, "Hillary Clinton is going to stand by the words in her book. She is not going to apologize for something she need not apologize for."
Earlier this year, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is also mentioned as a potential 2016 presidential contender, sparked an outcry when he referred to the West Bank as “occupied territories” in a March speech before the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas.
Christie later said he "misspoke" when he used the controversial term.
