Religious leaders in the Dominican Republic are calling for another round of protests Monday over President Obama's decision to nominate an open homosexual to serve as U.S. ambassador to the predominantly Catholic Caribbean nation.
Zimbabwe's state-owned newspaper was effusive praising U.S. Ambassador David Bruce Wharton after he expressed kind words for President Robert Mugabe, the longtime authoritarian ruler who tortures opponents and brutalizes civil rights activists.
The U.S. ambassador in Zimbabwe fears the troubled southern African nation will face another stolen election this year because the ruling party appears to have no desire to allow a free and fair vote.
The U.S. ambassador to Zimbabwe intended to deliver a few remarks at a local library, but he was left speechless by a nearly naked lady.
U.S. Ambassador Pamela White was personally exposed to the violent unrest that has swept Haiti for months when she accompanied President Michel Martelly to a coastal town to dedicate a new road financed by U.S. aid funds.
"I think it's important that we not prejudge this process," Mr. Wharton told Radio France International. "I still believe that it is possible for Zimbabwe to have a peaceful, credible election."
He insisted that the political situation has changed since Mr. Mugabe was forced to accept an opposition victory in 2008 parliamentary elections.
