OK, let me understand this, we went from elder statesman John Bolton to appeasing Muslim Zalmay Khalilzad. Oh, how the might have fallen.Â I’ve been on to this guy from the very first.

Envoys trade hugs and kisses at U.NÂ Post Chronicle
Ambassadors from the United States andÂ LibyaÂ exchanged hugs and kisses at the U.N. Security Council on Thursday in an unusual public display of affection between former arch enemies.
U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad and his Libyan counterpart Giadalla Ettalhi embraced after a meeting of the council on Iraq.
A reporter asked Khalilzad if the show of affection meant that good relations between the two countries had reached a new high.
Washington’s Afghan-bornÂ envoyÂ said his Libyan colleague had just returned from a long absence and his son had gotten married. Khalilzad said it was a tradition to congratulate the groom’s father and ask him if his pockets are empty.
“Because unlike in the United States, in the Middle East it is the groom’s side that pays for all the expenses of thewedding,” Khalilzad said.
Earlier this year in a speech to the council, another Libyan envoy compared the situation in the Gaza Strip to the Nazi Holocaust, prompting Khalilzad’s deputy and other Western envoys to walk out of the council chamber in protest.
