Blair isn't the man for the job

June 26, 2007

Re "There's talk of Blair as a Mideast envoy," June 21

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said that outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair is passionate about the issues of the Middle East and has played a constructive role in the international systems on these issues. He fails to say just what are Blair's accomplishments in making the Middle East less volatile and more hospitable in the decade he occupied the high office in Britain.

Blair may be passionate about Middle East issues, but I do not detect any passion for him by the people of the Middle East. His nomination to be a Mideast envoy makes about as much sense as President Bush seeking the same position in 2009.
