Diplomats Who Freed Kosovo Return as Entrepreneurs

The New York Times reports that "so many former American officials have returned to Kosovo for business -- in coal and telecommunications, or for lobbying and other lucrative government contracts -- that it is hard to keep them from colliding."

"Kosovo is not the only nation where former officials have returned to conduct business -- Iraq is another example -- but it presents an extreme case, and perhaps a special ethical quandary, given the outsize American influence here. Pristina, the capital, may be the only city in the world where Bob Dole Street intersects Bill Clinton Boulevard."
