More than 30 years ago, a high school teacher in southern Georgia suggested that Edward W. Gnehm Jr. consider going into the Foreign Service. At the time, Gnehm later conceded: "I had no idea what the Foreign Service was." On Thursday, in front of a crowd of Cabinet members and ranking U.S. officials packed into the State Department's cavernous eighth-floor ballroom, Gnehm was formally sworn in to what has become the most challenging job in the U.S. diplomatic corps--ambassador to Kuwait.

"Clearly, those individuals who broke Kuwaiti laws and were parties to Iraqi criminal actions should be prosecuted fairly and fully under the law," said Ambassador Edward W. (Skip) Gnehm Jr. "But the innocent should not become new victims."
