Bolton Kicking His Heels About Lack of Progress on UN Reforms?


I can’t help but post this interesting commentary by the American Prospect‘s Mark Leon Goldberg who is writing and blogging from the corridors of the United Nations Millennium Summit.
Read the whole piece, but for John Bolton fans:

So far, John Bolton is all smiles as he wanders the hall from meeting to meeting. A European diplomat I met remarked that during the negotiations, Bolton has been polite to the point of creepy. But I can’t help to think that unlike the ambassadors who only feign optimism, Bolton’s cheerfulness is genuine: He may have succeeded in derailing the most ambitious set of UN reforms in the organization’s history.

Right to the punch line.
