Very Interesting. I stumbled into this while reading
where by the way I ended up while reading
which i was reading out of curiosity after getting astonished by
[browsing is cool].
Some parts that try to link the story:
"THE BORGEN PROJECT IS BRINGING U.S.
POLITICAL ATTENTION TO SEVERE POVERTY.
The plan to end world hunger is underway and agreed to by every nation on earth. Are you ready to force U.S. leaders to achieve the Millennium Goals?"
(from the Borgen Website)
"Bolton, (...) interim U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (...), began his term by laying out a list of wanted amendments to details of the 2005 World Summit to be held in New York City in September 2005. These included stopping the UN use of the term "Millennium Development Goals"."
"Republican Sen. Lincoln Chafee (...) said he would block Bolton's nomination.
Sen. George Voinovich (...) read a list of complaints by Bolton's subordinates who said he had a reputation of bullying his colleagues, taking facts out of context and exaggerating intelligence.
Carl Ford, the former chief of the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research, called Bolton "a quintessential kiss-up, kick-down sort of guy" and a "serial abuser" of subordinates."
So this guy is what Mr Bush is sending to tackle the Millenium Goals. Oh boy. Thank god they just changed the Congress.
Things like this amaze me - how much internal American problems end up impacting the whole world.
This is why I stayed up late watching the vote count live on CNN last Tuesday.
