Backstage at Women in the World, Afghan elder Bibi Hokmina asked U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to please stop the night raids in her country. U.S. and Afghan forces frequently drop from helicopters to search the homes of suspected Taliban fighters, a practice that’s tremendously unpopular in Afghanistan. Hokmina told Napolitano that the raids violate women and children, and Napolitano replied that she would take Hokmina’s message all the way to the top. Admiral William McRaven estimates 2,800 raids were carried out last year.

Backstage diplomacy.

There was talk between Tina Brown and Bill Clinton of Libya, of Egypt, and even the Peter King hearings, but one question that brought a chuckle to audience was this one: When will there be a woman president?

Sorry, y’all—we’ve been a little busy (trying to shake Bill Clinton’s hand at this panel, obvs). To recap: Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s Women in the World Summit is happening now—and we’re live-blogging it all here

Thursday ended with a bang as Tina Brown sat down with former President Bill Clinton for a wide-ranging conversation that spanned Col. Muammar Gaddafi (he’s “crazy”), Afghanistan (“getting rid of the Taliban was a good thing”) and the controversial Peter King hearings on Islam (he’s going about them all wrong). A few of the interview’s newsiest moments.

Tina: America has never had a female president.
Bill: It’s not my fault! (Laughs)
