"Diplomad" discontinued

Diplomad, the pseudonymous group of State Department officials which slagged the UN so roundly in the recent tsunami crisis, is closing down. I hope they are right, when they say their USAID colleagues may be coming out with a blog. But I doubt any other similar blog will provide us with Diplomad's inside scoop and bracing snark. If any stray reader of mine tends to judge the U.S. by its failures and the UN by its press releases, read Diplomad's archive while you can.
