Ambassador Bolton Resigns

Well, this is disappointing. As I understand it, should he have stayed on without the appropriate Congressional approvals (highly unlikely), he would have done so gratis. Ah well. The truth is that the U.N. is a magnificently corrupt and bloated entity that has not been truly relevant... ever. Having worked with the U.N. in many countries, I can honestly say that the vast majority of programs suck. That being said, the World Food Program (WFP) appeared to be well run and somewhat less corrupt. Nice.

So bottom line is that while I personally think that Ambassador Bolton is the Bee's Knee's, he simply isn't worth the amount of energy it will take to fight.
