It's crap like THIS that makes you wanna bawl and beat your head against a wall. How do these incompetent, ignoramuses get appointed to these positions? And why didn't anyone say anything about it. If it were not for the curiousity and tenacity of a single congressman, this would have probably never come to light.

"Ambassador Nancy Powell, America’s representative in Pakistan, refused to allow the distribution in Pakistan of wanted posters, matchbooks, and other items advertising America’s $25 million reward for information leading to the capture of Mr. bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders.

Instead, thousands of matchbooks, posters, and other material — printed at taxpayer expense and translated into Urdu, Pashto, and other local languages — remained “impounded” on American Embassy grounds from 2002 to 2004, according to Rep. Mark Kirk, Republican of Illinois." New York Sun
