The State Department’s website this week offers an opportunity to submit questions online to William Brownfield, the U.S. ambassador to Colombia. Answers will appear on Friday. Let’s not toss him softballs!
Meanwhile the State Department will hold a briefing at 3:00 today to present the Bush administration’s 2009 aid request. We’re already getting calls and emails about what this request might mean for Colombia and Latin America; the answer is that we just won’t know until those numbers are made public here, which should be at around 3:00, though we’ll keep checking back all day.
