Why Bolton Is Wrong for U.N. Part xxx.234 (a, b1, c(2) sub para. 6)
If only it were about unlawful firing! Read the whole thing, and you'll see that the headline writers are oblivious to the rest of the article:
Bolton Said to Orchestrate Unlawful Firing
A former Bolton deputy says the U.S. undersecretary of state felt Jose Bustani "had to go," particularly because the Brazilian was trying to send chemical weapons inspectors to Baghdad. That might have helped defuse the crisis over alleged Iraqi weapons and undermined a U.S. rationale for war.Good afternoon, friends. I was going to comment on how lovely it was today, but then suddenly a thunderstorm has swept thru. I had been alternately gessoing and surfing, so had to rescue all my panels from the side yard before continuing with this gem.
Bustani, who says he got a "menacing" phone call from Bolton at one point, was removed by a vote of just one-third of member nations at an unusual special session of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), at which the United States cited alleged mismanagement in calling for his ouster.
I know I've been promising you a tree a day, but spreading the Bolton story is more important right now.
