The ambassador and his belly dancer

Former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig “Mossad? Why not?” Murray (an occasional commenter to/basher of Harry’s Place) and his girlfriend Nadira Alieva (currently appearing in London in a one-woman show “The British Ambassador’s Belly Dancer”) are the subject of a long and rather overwritten piece in Friday’s Washington Post.

And despite all, I admire Mr. Murray’s willingness to stand up against the brutal Karimov regime and to protest US and UK ties to that regime.
