Why Isn't Gregory Engle Stateside?

While the shock of Rafik Hariri's assassination still hung in the air, the Bush administration decided to pull its ambassador to Syria to show its disapproval with what it believes to be Syria's role in the killing. Yet this same administration with its professed love of democracy and the rule of law has so far failed to call Gregory Engle, U.S. Ambassador to Togo home for the Togolese military's role in enshrining Faure Gnassingbe as President of the country following the death of his father in clear contravention to the Togolese constitution.

Are we to assume that African democracies are less a priority than Arab ones for this administration?

Yes, that would be a safe assumption indeed.
