Tom Barnett's New Map has been noted by State.
So that official, Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Sullivan, is on a mini-domestic tour to promote free trade and tout the Bush administration's commitment to foreign aid.
Somebody from Hughes' office should be using this map to show where public diplomacy & strategic communication efforts should and must be directed (but not to the detriment of friendly countries... Hamburg anyone, big cities in England...). Not going to happen. No money and no leadership. But please, surprise me. Please!
