Good Point Re Bolton

An e-mail:

Subject: comment from a U.S. dip who agrees with you.

As a dip overseas, saw something in a Wash Post editorial on Bolton which irked me and shows the misapprehension of so many on this issue. The Post said words to the effect that `Bolton so derides the organization he would serve.’ Our ambassadors don’t serve the orgs to which they are posted. They serve the U.S. and U.S. interests. More importantly, they are `the President’s rep to the country/institution,’ not just State Department careerists on another assignment. Small but valid point.
