U.S. Nominee To Turkey Faces Grilling
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The man nominated to be the new U.S. envoy to Turkey
could face tough hearings in Congress.
President Barack Obama has nominated Francis Ricciardone to be the new
U.S. ambassador to Turkey. Ricciardone, deputy ambassador in the U.S.
embassy in Afghanistan, has been under fire for failing to follow the
pro-democracy policy of then-President George Bush when the career diplomat
was ambassador to Egypt.
