State Dept institutes draft

By Libby

Some may think that's too strong a word for this new policy for the diplomatic corps but if you don't have the right to refuse a post, then I don't know what else you call it but an involuntary draft. Up to fifty people may be forced to take postings to the new Baghdad Embassy.

It reminds me of the old Russian jokes about being sent to Siberia. The new joke will be about being banished to Baghdad.
