Recommended Posts

The U.S. ambassador to Qatar reportedly resigned on Tuesday over President Trump’s criticism of the Persian Gulf nation.

CNBC’s John Harwood reported that Ambassador Dana Shell Smith resigned over Trump’s attacks. Harwood cited Trump’s recent comments about Qatar, saying they undermined State Department efforts to ease tensions.

I'm not going to pretend I know what this means! But I feel it is an important marker!

Dana Shill Smith? Haven't heard of him/her.

This probably doesn't bode well for oil/gas prices or for the prospects of MOAR WAR in the Middle East

“This month, I end my 3 years as U.S. Ambassador to #Qatar. It has been the greatest honor of my life and I'll miss this great country,” Ambassador Dana Shell Smith wrote on Twitter.
