More On The eUNuchs
The Diplomad is a blog career US Foreign Service officers. They are Republican (most of the time) in an institution (State Department) in which being a Republican can be bad for your career -- even with a Republican President!
They're also in the field as it were. It seems the "Chief Diplomad" is in Aceh, or thereabouts, because he has been blogging about his experience with the tsunami recovery and his dealings with the UN in a post entitled The "Turd" World And The High Priest Vulture Elite*. What caught my eye was this telling bit:
That work, unfortunately, has brought ever-increasing contact with the growing UN presence in this capital; in fact, we've found that to avoid running into the UN, we must go out to where the quake and tsunami actually hit.
Steve, I know you think I should be all freakin' Hemingway with this blog, cranking out miniature Men at War, but I trust some might enjoy the insight provided by such an unique blog.
