Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is convening an unprecedented mass meeting of U.S. ambassadors.
The top envoys from nearly all of America's 260 embassies, consulates and other posts in more than 180 countries will be gathering at the State Department beginning on Monday. Officials say it's the first such global conference.
That has never been done before and the timing cannot be overlooked in the wake of what is happening in Egypt. I am surprised that the president has allowed it. Provided that he is even aware that it is happening.
I would love to be a bug on the wall at the State Department next Monday. In the interim, watch what happens in Egypt then consider how that will play with American diplomacy as we move forward and then consider what Hillary may be telling these diplomats at next week's meeting.
