State Dept. Listed Texas as Foreign Country

On Wednesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry hinted at Texas secession at an Austin Tea Party rally. On Thursday, state Dems were telling him to knock it off.

But it looks like Perry wasn't alone in his desire for Texas to reemerge as a sovereign nation.

On Friday, the U.S. Department of State had Texas among a list of 16 foreign countries visited by Secretary Hillary Clinton last month, according to The Huffington Post.

Clinton was in the "state" to accept an award from Planned Parenthood in Houston and to appear at Dallas' Women's Museum -- and not to work on diplomatic relations.

On the list, Texas was sandwiched between Turkey and Switzerland. The state department has since edited their list, but The Huffington Post still has a screen grab available here.
