Interview with George Washington Today

I am interviewed in the launch issue of George Washington Today, GW's "primary source of news and information." You can view the interview here.


  1. Nice photo and background! It is interesting that you made the point of travelling to all corners of Ethiopia. I reckon that translates to about 30 trips during your 3 year tenure as US Ambassador to Ethiopia. Now, that is real ambassadorship!


  2. Thanks for the feedback. Actually, I probably made more than 100 trips, some of them quite brief, in three plus years. I visited every zone, most of them multiple times, except for five in Somali region where the security situation did not permit me to travel.
