Yesterday on the Today Programme, I heard an American who was described as the US Ambassador to NATO. I had no idea who she was. Her function seemed to be taking the begging bowl round for more European troops to assist the British, Canadian and Dutch in taking on the Taliban in the south of Afghanistan. She looked and sounded like one of those botoxed women you see flogging perfume on some shopping channel. She was about as unconvincing.
A couple of minutes Googling led me to Victoria Nuland,
and then to her entry on that wondeful site "Political Friendster"
She's married to Neocon Robert Kagan, worked for Dick Cheney
and, it seems, spent some time discussing Ugandan Affairs with
So a Neocon Lickptittle after all. Everything fell into place
