Hello everyone!! As I’m sure you have figured out by now, blogging has been pretty low this week. Normally I would say that this is due to a slacking-off period, but that would be a complete mischaracterization. These past few days have been drenched with end-of-the-year academic ceremonies and yes…graduation from college.
Obviously I picked a pretty bad week to limit my posts; Afghan President Hamid Karzai just finished his good-will tour of Washington yesterday, the NPT conference continues in New York City until the end of the month, the U.S. is eying a new U.N. sanctions package on Iran, and there are now rumors that the U.S Military might delay its troop withdrawal schedule in Iraq by a few months (although this is not confirmed as of yet).
So keep up with the news (as I will try to do over the next couple of days) and I hope to meet everyone back here next week for another round.
