Speaking of Qatar

The US ambassador to Qatar took to Twitter on Tuesday to confirm that her posting will come to an end this month.

"This month, I end my 3 years as US Ambassador to #Qatar. It has been the greatest honor of my life and I'll miss this great country," Dana Shell Smith said on Twitter on Tuesday.


"Ambassador Dana Smith's assignment as Ambassador comes to an end this month and she will depart Qatar later this month as part of the normal rotation of career diplomats throughout the world," a spokesperson said.

"Her decision to leave the Foreign Service was made earlier this year and we wish her the best as she moves on from the Department of State."

Al Jazeera also understands that Shell Smith's decision was taken before the Gulf diplomatic crisis erupted last week.

She won't be replaced. And Trump will probably blame the Democrats.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
