Were All Diplomats This Good

A young girl in Afghanistan has burns over 30% of her body, and nobody can help.

She could die.

A Norwegian diplomat happens by, and jets her out of there.

Støre expects that he will be criticized for this effort, but isn’t worried.

“No one can save everyone, but everyone can save someone,” Støre said, who has already notified several Afghan ministers about his plans.

I’ve never heard of an American diplomat EVER doing something this- brave, selfless. I suppose they’re inured to the suffering of others, in an ivory tower kind of way.

Honestly, could you imagine our own frequent flyer mileage queen Condi being so selfless?

Nah, me either.
