US embassy in Czech Republic stuck up for Prague Parade

The rightist, Ladislav Batora, who is also a senior Education Ministry official, took the unusual step of lashing out at the U.S. ambassador, Norman L. Eisen. Along with 12 other ambassadors, Mr. Eisen signed a letter of support for the parade. It was not clear why the American was singled out, since the letter was initiated by the British Embassy, and signed by the ambassadors of Canada and European countries from Spain to Estonia.
Apparently the current leader is a bit of a neanderthal. I'm always amazed when countries that have been liberated from communist dictatorships act like communist dictatorships. Fortunately, most everyone in politics turned against the Czech president on this one. Including the US embassy. Two points for the administration.
