Good Job US Embassy in Kazakhstan

June 14 2010

Michigan

It’s horrible to follow a horrible situation and know that there should, at a minimum, be greater awareness of what’s going on, if not calls for action to protect innocent people from further slaughter.  At least there’s some coverage in American newspapers and on blogs.

Especially given that state of facts, it’s amazing that the US Embassy in Kazakhstan’s weekly e-mail update (in both English and Russian), sent out Monday morning, KZ time, includes absolutely no mention of the violence/unrest in Southern Kyrgyzstan.

See below for the weekly update.
