Embassy Security

Very interesting read from the Bible of Foreign Policy thinking.

Thanks for that, it was a good read. I think the days when appointments to ambassadorships are seen as fluffy political gifts are on the wane, at least where countries in the Middle East and Asia are concerned.

Your welcome. I found it surprising that the ambassador was hitting the pistol range in preparation for the assault. Yeah, getting into the Foreign Service is no joke, I have had brilliant friends go through the process several times before being accepted.
