    habla espanol senor? no?
    Thought not. Noah probably thinks he is in a village just south of Cancun...
    such is the US estimation of Argentina these days....
    not even a blip on the political radar, why elst sent this nobody as an ambassador?
    Maybe ElaineB can tell us the reasoning for this appointment?
    After all Noah has no relevant history for this job.....
    is is a snub to KFC? or simply an irrelevance?

    It's no good being able to speak Spanish in TDC: low level jibber-jabba is needed plus a labotomy to bring him down to Gollum's level.

    Obuma must really think a lot of TDC putting this character in as Ambassador, NOT.

    At least he got that right.

    I bet that meeting was pure comedy gold. An avid reader of Argentine current affairs, which include state sanctioned assassinations, widescale poverty and corruption, economy in free fall and national obsession with mythical land called Malvinas.

    You really have landed over the rainbow Dorothy

    “Ambassador Mamet... is looking forward to working with the Argentine government and people on energy, environmental protections, health issues, and “in particular, education exchanges” while also strengthening existing cooperation in technology and boosting bilateral trade and investment.”

    Is the cooperation in technology Argentina passing on their cutting edge technology-the latest in stone axes?

    The concept of 'education exchanges ' give rise to much mirth-are the Argentines going to export their educational technique of brainwashing re: the Malvinas Myth fairy tale?

    I guess in return the US guy could teach the Argentines advanced methods of setting tyres on fire.

    Sr. Timmerman does not look very happy.

    The new US Ambassador or the Nisman murder: Which is it ?
