Great Moments in Diplomacy

For your entertainment while I am trapped in O’Hare…

According to “the BBC,”:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/6441461.stm Israel has recalled its ambassador to El Salvador “after he was found drunk and naked apart from bondage gear.”

Here’s my favorite part:

bq. Apparently the man was “able to identify himself to police only after a rubber ball had been removed from his mouth.”

Foreign Mnistry spokeswoman Zehavit Ben-Hillel described his behavior as “unbecoming of a diplomat.” Haaretz “has more.”:http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/836258.html

Depends on what kind of diplomacy you’re engaged in…

*Update:*

I had to add this tidbit from an “AFP article, via Rawstory.”:http://rawstory.com/news/afp/Israel_envoy_recalled_over_bondage__03122007.html

Acccording to a FM source, the ambassador’s public appearance marked “the first time” that he “had ever distingished himself in any way.”

    Since he’s Israeli, it is his bondage “gear” rather than his bondage “kit” (pr whatever). “Gear” sounds kinky, in a militaristic middle eastern way…
