US Mid-East Envoy needs a regional office

US Presidential Mid-East Envoy, George Mitchell, is apparently looking to open a regional office according to this USA Today report.

A Jerusalem locale spot is on the shopping list but until the US Embassy moves, I say the best place for his regional office is a prime downtown location in Sderot. Nothing says incoming like a kassam to lower real estate values, and due to the downturn in the global economy, I think it prudent for the US government to show a little fiscal restraint.

Good points there, but more importantly, in Sderot, Mitchell can accomplish what Obama has sent him to do. After all, he was told to "listen," and those kassams pretty much encapsulate everything that the palestinians have to say!
