Nicaraguan Ambassador to US to Speak at UNM
A University of New Mexico press release says that Ambassador Arturo Cruz, Jr. will be speaking on 17 October. The subject is Political Trends in Latin America and Challenges to the Ortega Government in Nicaragua.
Cruz, who was was appointed Nicaraguan Ambassador to the United States in February 2007 by President Daniel Ortega, is intimately associated with Nicaragua’s tumultuous recent history and its controversial relationship with the United States, having participated in both the early Sandinista government following the 1979 overthrow of the Somoza dictatorship and the Nicaraguan Resistance during the 1980’s.
Ok, that paragraph did make me laugh. Was the choice of intimately in any way associated with his relationship with Oliver North's secretary, Fawn Hall? Naw, couldn't be. :-) In any case, it does seem like it could be a very interesting talk. Hopefully it will get some news coverage.
