CFR/Trilaterals/Bilderbergers Ross, Holbrooke, Haass To Serve As Envoys

Update: Perhaps I was premature about Haass. But maybe not… stay tuned.
Transition officials confirm that President-elect Obama has asked Dennis Ross, Richard Haass, and Richard Holbrooke, to serve as his chief emissaries to world hot spots.
It’s expected that Ross will get the Iran portfolio, that Holbrooke, the hard-headed architect of the Dayton Peace Accords, will take the tough (and tougher) Southwest Asia portfolio, which includes India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, and that Haass will deal with the Middle East.
