Further to Booman’s diary here last week Is John Bolton’s Confirmation in Trouble? I noticed the following encouraging opposition to John Bolton’s nomination to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations
Three more former American diplomats have signed a letter (you’ll need to scroll down a little for the letter) opposing the nomination of John Bolton to US ambassador to the U.N., bringing the total to 62.
Some 59 former American diplomats had written, to declare their opposition to Boltons appointment, to Sen.Richard.G.Lugar (R-Ind) chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who has scheduled hearings on Bolton’s nomination for April 7.
Some choice quotes from the letter
Meanwhile, just as an illustration of the b.s. this administration comes out with (not that it needs illustrating, but humour me)
Stephen Hadley, National Security Adviser, 14/3/05 :
John Bolton, World Federalist Association speech, 3/2/94 :
pretty caring I’d say.
Finally for the best information as this story develops, I’d recommend Steve Clemons Washington Note
