New American ambassador to Damascus named?

December 15th, 2009 · 3 Comments · Politics

Two separate sources claim to know the name of the new American ambassador to Damascus. Well, they’ve got it down to two names, at least.

The long-awaited move would be the formal end of America’s isolation of Syria, which started when Bush recalled their ambassador two days after Rafiq Hariri was killed.

FW Magazine claims a scoop, with this information: the next American ambassador will either be Jacob Walles or Nabil Khury. Walles used to be the US consul-general in Occupied Jerusalem. Khury is an American of Lebanese descent.

FW cites diplomatic sources in Damascus and Washington. And backing up their claims is this post by Syria expert Josh Landis, who has mentioned the same two names.

Is something about to happen? Finally.

    I almost laughed at FW having a “scoop”. That the name has been “leaked” to them. Somebody please tell them they aren’t the New York Times or the FT and that they aren’t in Kansas anymore!
