Guam - The U.S. State Department confirms that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a stop to Guam on her way to Manila.  Andy Laine, with the State Department's Press Office, told KUAM that Secretary Clinton spent just over an hour at Andersen Air Force Base in Yigo as her Boeing 757 was refueled. 

Secretary Clinton had departed Hawaii where she attended the APEC Conference and she is expected to spend the next few days in Manila before going to Thailand.  Laine did not have information on whether Clinton met with any base officials during her brief stopover.

Governor Eddie Calvo and Speaker Judi Won Pat were not informed of Clinton's refueling stop and were not invited to greet her on the base.  Andersen Public Affairs could not confirm the arrival on Tuesday referring all inquiries to the State Department. Clinton's 757 aircraft landed at the Yigo base just after 2pm Tuesday and left just after 3pm.

Laine said the secretary of state is expected to return back to the U.S. mainland on November 19, but it's unclear whether she will make another stop on Guam.
