The Ambassador’s New Driver Mar 14

Jeremy Zelinger, IGL staff member, reflects on his conversation during a drive with Amb. Robert Ford during the EPIIC Symposium. 

 

Twenty minutes before Ambassador Ford climbed into my van to go to Logan Airport, he was sitting on a panel at the EPIIC symposium with some of the world’s premier experts on Syria, sharing his experiences on the ground from that war torn country. And two days ago he was still Ambassador to Syria, negotiating between the rebels and the White House, trying desperately to build trust between the two. He might’ve had the most difficult job in the US State Department. Two days ago he chose to resign as Ambassador and leave behind nearly three decades as a career foreign service officer.
