SPECIAL ENVOY TO NORTH KOREA

The Associated Press (AP), as published in the "Las Vegas Sun," reports that President Bush appointed a new special envoy to North Korea yesterday -- Jay Lefkowitz.

Lefkowitz is a former domestic policy adviser to Bush and served as part of the U.S. delegations to the U.N. Rights Commission and the International Conference on Anti-Semitism sponsored by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Gee, I would have expected Bush to name former president and self-appointed diplomat-at-large Jimmy Carter to the post, since he unfailingly promotes himself as the world's prevailing expert on human rights.
