Ethiopia: Open letter to US Ambassador

Carpe Diem Ethiopia post an open letter from Birtukan Mideksa to the US ambassador, Vicki Huddleston. He comments “Judge Bertukan’s disgust with the U.S. Ambassador’s duplicity, however, is a searing indictment of the neocon dilemma: support for governments that repress their people but are declared allies in the U.S.-led war against terrorism. Judge Birtukan’s epistle, like Martin Luther King’s, ends with her repeated hope that a bright future awaits her followers and her nation.”
