Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid tribute to the Polish president and other top Polish leaders killed in a plane crash.

Secretary Clinton visited the Polish Embassy in Wshington and spent a few minutes signing a condolence book.

The plane crash Saturday killed the Polish president, along with 96 top Polish officials.

Clinton said she was confident in the strength and resiliency of the Polish people during this difficult time.

"We Americans stand with you, now and forever, not only the many proud Polish-Americans who grieve with you today, but every American who admires what Poland has built, admires what Poland stands for, admires the Polish people," said Clinton.

Secretary Clinton went on to say the United States and Poland will work together to build a better future- one that the people in that fatal plane crash gave their lives for.
