Shall Not Be Questioned brings up an embarrassing diplomatic faux-pax.
Kazakhstan’s shooting team has been left stunned after a comedy national anthem from the film Borat was played at a medal ceremony at championships in Kuwait instead of the real one. …
The song was produced by UK comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for the film, which shows Kazakhs as backward and bigoted.
What is it with our diplomatic culture? The President says we can solve most of our problems through diplomacy, but then gives the wrong kind of CD to the British Queen, and has the Israeli Prime Minister leaving the White House next to the garbage pails? Is the Executive no longer getting sound advice regarding how to properly behave in the diplomatic arena?
Now this? This is tantamount to playing Hurray for Captain Spaulding to honor one of our military heroes.
Get a clue, people!
