Ramifications, appointment of US Ambassador to Azerbaijan

Matthew Bryza: sly move, or part of a sinister US strategic plan for the region?

It is a real threat for Armenian for Bryza to be US Ambassador to Azerbaijan, and not only for Armenia but for those living in the diaspora; by all accounts this man is not to be trusted.

I'd like to see someone publish an extensive record of how many leading media outlets have had knowledge of the Khurcha incident, stage event in Georgia a few years back, and other extremely worrying incidents, but not one media organization decided to be the one to break ranks.

Many questions arise as to  media's role in society, as a corrective to the government, and the duty to inform the public about what is happening, a responsibility shirked by many media organizations in the case of Georgia, in similar ways as has been noted by critics is also the case in Kosovo for instance.

Bryza is sleazy and has left a mark on too many nasty little projects, such as Georgia. Azerbaijan is a feudal state, Armenia not much better, and Georgia a failed state running on US and Russian money in equal measure.

It is hard to believe that any Armenian would outright support Obama now. Armenia is itself only a little less of a feudal state than Azerbaijan is, by most accounts.

Kind of a depressing way to enter into 2011. But there is always hope,

It is a real threat for Armenian for Bryza to be Ambassador, and not only for Armenia but those living in the diaspora, and this man is not to be trusted. He is sleazy and has left a mark on too many nasty little projects, such as Georgia.

Azerbaijan is a feudal state, not to say that Armenia is that much better?

How can any Armenians support Obama now, aside from all his other backsliding on promises? Yeah... Armenians are small and weak,  not very well at making friends in the neighborhood. At the end of the day - and, often, at the beginning of the day - nobody really cares about the Armenians. It seems that the recess appointment of Matthew Bryza is a shady sort of institution and has been in the works for sometime, most likely wanting someone in the area that that knows where all the bodies are buried.

I am sure that Bryza knows the famous Hitler quote, as instrucitons to fear not what history will say,  "who still speaks now of the extermination of the Armenians?"

How can any Armenians or self-respecting person support Obama, aside from all his other backsliding on promises? As for Bryza, his track record and documented conflict of record, involvement in Georgian Affairs, espeically with the nexus to his wife, Turkish Intelligence and the Nixon Institute is an open record, wound.

Obama not concerned about the Armenian lobby in the US or its position in the world?

What is the real  motivation for this?

President Barack Obama named Matthew Bryza U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan

Baku: President Barack Obama named Matthew Bryza U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan, the press secretariat of the White House said.

President Obama announced Wednesday his intent to recess appoint six nominees including Matthew Bryza to fill key administration posts that have been left vacant for an extended period of time.

Recess appointments are made when the Senate is not in session and last only until the end of the next session of Congress. They are frequently used when Senate confirmation is not possible.

Obama used his Constitutional power to recess appoint six people who have had their nominations pending for an average of 147 days, according to White House officials.

Bryza currently serves as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of European and Eurasian Affairs. He previously served as the Director for Europe and Eurasia at the National Security Council in the White House. He was also Special Advisor to the President and Secretary of State on Caspian Basin Energy Diplomacy. Bryza has also served in Russia and Poland. He also served as U.S. co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as ambassador to Azerbaijan.

The post of U.S. ambassador in Baku has been vacant since the previous ambassador, Anne Derse, left it due to completion of her diplomatic mission, in July 2009.
