The musings of an Out and Proud Foreign Service Officer
Monday, April 06, 2009
According to Al Kamen this morning in the Washington Post, five top State Department officials were confirmed this past week: Richard Verma as Assistant Secretary legislative affairs (L), Esther Brimmer as Assistant Secretary for international organization affairs (IO), Rose Gottemoeller as Assistant Secretary verification and compliance (VCI), Melanne Verveer as ambassador at large for global women's issues, and Army Lt. Gen. Karl Eikenberry as ambassador to Afghanistan.
This blog is intended to give anyone who is interested some insight into life in the Foreign Service. The views expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. State Department. But hopefully, I won't say anything that will even make you wonder.
