Josh Rogin of The Cable on U.S. envoy in angry fight with Turkish ambassador, right outside Clinton meeting (February 19, 2010 – 11:21 AM):
U.S. Ambassador to Doha Joseph LeBaron got into an angry — and by some accounts physical — altercation with Turkish Ambassador Fuat Tanlay in Qatar last weekend, when LeBaron tried to cut off the late-running meeting between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan[..]State Department Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs P.J. Crowley was an eyewitness and gave his account to The Cable.“There was a sharp exchange of words, after which the ambassador banged on the door that led to the meeting location,” Crowley told The Cable. “I recall that he was pulled away from the door, at which time several of us interceded.”
Imagine if somebody in the delegation was actually on Twitter when this went down and had a blow by blow account…yep, I know, bad idea. More difficult to scrubbed, massaged, get a spa-treatment for an runaway message or incident.
