WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama has bypassed the Senate and directly appointed four new U.S. ambassadors whose nominations had been stalled or blocked by lawmakers for months.
The White House announced Wednesday that Obama would use his power to make recess appointments to fill envoy posts to Azerbaijan, Syria and NATO allies Turkey and the Czech Republic. Recess appointments are made when the Senate is not in session and last only until the end of the next session of Congress. They are frequently used when Senate confirmation is not possible.
What got my attention is an Ambassadors' posting for Syria.
We're going to have diplomatic relations with a fucking country that not only openly promotes terrorism but also has training camps on it's soil? Are you fucking kidding me, Barry?
