Posted on 12/12/2017 6:28:55 AM PST by RoosterRedux
A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump's and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's policies.
Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford's letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority and shows disdain for the State Department's diplomatic work.
"I have deep respect for the career Foreign and Civil Service staff who, despite the stinging disrespect this Administration has shown our profession, continue the struggle to keep our foreign policy on the positive trajectory necessary to avert global disaster in increasingly dangerous times," she writes in the letter she sent on November 7. "With each passing day, however, this task grows more futile, driving the Departments experienced and talented staff away in ever greater numbers."

That's not what I want the State Dept to prioritize.
Rising star BS. She was just in the FS for 7 years. A junior officer.
“driving the Departments experienced and talented staff away in ever greater numbers.”
Hopefully, thousands of liberals in the State department will leave and write letters of why they hate our president and our country.
The state department may be in a worse condition than our worthless FBI/DOJ.
Excellent! Now if we could just get every leftist flunky to resign from the FBI, DOJ and all of the other useless agencies of the federal government.
“driving the Departments experienced and talented staff away in ever greater numbers.
Great news. Hopefully, the greater numbers will increase at a faster rate each day!
Did anyone else catch the priority of the State Department is to advance human rights?
“A supposed “rising star” at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump’s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s policies.”
Thank You, Lord!
May many more globalist rats in government take her lead.
I hope Tillerson has a plan to eliminate the positions. They dont serve a useful function.
That and he is tough as nails.
And he does indeed get mad as hell when anyone let's him down.
This country is on the verge of being COMPLETELY transformed into what was promise by Trump during the election.
Why wasn’t she fired? This is why the Deep State is flourishing.
Kind of like Obama, but female besides just being effeminate.
I think Tillerson plans to eliminate their positions and reduce State Department overhead.
