WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Concerned Women for America (CWA) laments the resignation today of U.S. Acting Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton. Ambassador Bolton was an eminently qualified nominee with a proven record of serving the American people. It is shameful that some U.S. Senators have successfully blocked the nomination of this fine man.
CWA President Wendy Wright said, “Ambassador John Bolton served honorably and successfully as U.S. Acting Ambassador to the United Nations. Even considering the short time that he served, he will stand out for having accomplished historic measures. The senators who blocked his nomination have done a huge disservice to the United States and the United Nations by removing one of the most effective ambassadors that institution has seen.”
Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute Dr. Janice Crouse said, “In his short tenure at the U.N., John Bolton made dramatic strides in restoring fiscal responsibility, establishing procedures of accountability, instituting necessary reforms and working toward restoring human rights in North Korea and other troubled areas of the world. Rather than let accusations remain unaddressed, Bolton countered the constant verbal attacks against the United States by international representatives to the U.N. who use that platform for out-of-control anti-American rhetoric. John Bolton has the ideal balance of intellect, diplomacy, integrity and straight-forward honesty to handle rogue nations. What a loss to international peace and understanding! What a loss to statesmanship and honor! Future historians may mark Bolton’s resignation as the death knell of the United Nations.”
