Jeffrey Feltman, here, there, everywhere!

"(After Bahrain & Lebanon,) ... Assistant Secretary Jeffrey Feltman was in Libya earlier this week, where he asked the Transitional National Council to open an office in Washington (even though they already have one). Feltman is now in Egypt, where he met with Deputy Foreign Minister Wafaa Bassim, Major General Mohammad Al Assar, Major General Murad Muwafi, Secretary General of the Arab League Amr Moussa, and some political activists. Toner said there was no real objection to the news Egypt would open the Rafah border crossing with Israel permanently. "I would imagine that they're well aware of our concerns, ... We also believe that the Egyptians are fully aware of and capable of providing that kind of security."
