1: Now, what is the State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki telling about U.S. visa to Indian P.M. Modi specially when she told less than two weeks ago that he should apply for A-1 visa and he may not apply for it? Does she realize now that she should control her tongue before talking about Indian dignitaries and think twice if not ten times?
