Barack Obama’s Campaign Manager David Plouffe’s impending trip to Azerbaijan is inappropriate and should be cancelled. I hope that the President and Sec. of State Clinton dissuade Plouff from traveling to an authoritarian county to promote the government’s undemocratic ambitions.
This kind of trip is dangerous and represents the worst of American foreign policy. Cozying up to a dictatorship that does not share our values of liberty and freedom is dangerous and wrong.
Shame on Plouffe and the Obama Administration. There’s a lot of money for Plouffe to make – he doesn’t need to go to Baku to do it.
