Is there no prominent person available to head to Srebrenica July 11 on behalf of the administration to mark the fifteenth anniversary of the genocide of some 8,000 Bosnian Muslims? No, there isn’t, according to an announcement just made by the White House.
The Bosnian Muslims, who suffered unconscionably but who do not represent a significant voting block in the United States – call me a cynic, I know – are getting a delegation led by one Charles L. English, THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THEIR COUNTRY.
What kind of delegation is that? He’s already there!
Isn’t there at least a Cabinet secretary around. I mean, I understand the Secretary of Interior is busy, but what about the rest of them?
Ironic that the anniversary occurs as the Netherlands gets set to contend for the World Cup. The Netherlands is held to be the country most responsible for failing to prevent the massacre.
