Default Re: UN Plaza: Staffing Up State

To anyone whose interest was piqued by this all-too-short diavlog, I highly recommend J. Anthony Holmes Foreign Affairs essay Where Are the Civilians? How to Rebuild the U.S. Foreign Service.

A great factoid therein: America has more personnel employed in military bands than it does foreign service officers. It's pretty tough to "rebuild our image abroad" with so few gun-less representatives of the U.S. gov't out in the field.
