A MINOR INCIDENT
I see that we are about to get a new ambassador to the Untied States from our famous friend and ally Great Britain. It seems that the existing ambassador was reputedly a trifle undiplomatic in his descriptions of the President of the United States. It seems somebody leaked some of his candid remarks found in diplomatic cables. I remember reading those for a year because for some reason COMUSNAVCENT was copied on every single dispatch from countries in the region and so we got to know a lot more about idiotic things than we wanted. Some of our ambassadors could be brutal in describing things in the countries the US stuck them in. If you labor under the illusion that our foriegn service and things like ambassadors are pleasant people with a mission to civilize, you'd be very wrong. I'm grateful I was out before Obama and Clinton took the jobs. I can only imagine how hideous that kind of job would be whilst working for the likes of them.
