Diplomatic Rebellion

There is something of a rebellion going on the the US State Department. Hundreds of diplomatic staff and diplomats have point blank refused to be sent to Iraq, as they regard it as a death sentence.

The postings in Iraq have been voluntary up until now. However, the Secretary of State does have the legal authority to order assignments.

ABC News has a brief recording of a town meeting where the diplomats vented their spleens. Listen to it here ABC

Not much of a vote of confidence for the way things are being "managed" at the moment.
