Where is April Glaspie ?

Where is April Glaspie when you need her ? April Glaspie you will remember was the last US Ambassador in Baghdad (before the illegal invasion and the installation of a series of puppet regimes). She met Saddam Hussein and told him as he was sending his armoured battalions south to invade Kuwait that the US really "takes no position". The verbatim record shows ... "U.S. Ambassador Glaspie - We have no opinion on your Arab - Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary (of State James) Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960's, that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America."

Well a lot of blood has been spilled on the floor since then and we have heard nothing from her ... apparently that day she couldn't get through to the State Department and so took the rap quietly moved on....first going to a lowly job at United Nations then Consul General in Cape Town, then she retired in 2002.

April was the first US woman Ambassador to an Arab country and much respected. Wouldn't it be nice to hear what she has to say about Iraq today ?
