Mugabe Tells US Ambassador to go to hell

On the surface of it, having the leader of your host country tell you to go to hell seems like poor diplomacy. But in this case, I have to say that career diplomat Christopher Dell deserves a handshake if he ever gets himself expelled from what has to be his least favorite job ever.

Reuters reports that Robert Mugabe got angry at our Ambassador when he gave a public statement critical of government land policies and human rights issues.
This was hardly Dell's first run in with his hosts. Not too long ago he was held at gunpoint for walking on their lawn, or trying to overthrow the government, depending on which side you believe.
