Nimrata Haley: Counter-productive

It is interesting to watch Nimrata “Nikki” Haley speak as she fills the chair of the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

              Starting to look like John Kerry                              Wincing

She spoke of security in the Middle East and was pointed her finger at Iran.  She said, with a straight face, that they have destabilized the region.

One would think that being diplomatic should be a prerequisite to having a position as the Ambassador to the United Nations.  Evidently not.

The U.S. needs to be an even-handed broker in the Middle East, and this is important to our security.  If Nimrata Haley makes grotesque statements like she did here, this will only alienate most people in the region.  She will only deepen divisions, distrust, and hatred;  she will help increase the violence, and this will do no one any good.
