Democracy Now: Former Nicaraguan Foreign Minister to Rep Libya at U.N.

A former Nicaraguan foreign minister has been tapped as Libya’s new envoy to the United Nations. The Nicaraguan government claims to have sent a letter declaring Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann’s new role on Libya’s behalf. The 78-year-old D’Escoto has been an outspoken critic of the United States. In a 2004 interview on Democracy Now!, D’Escoto called former President Ronald Reagan “the butcher of my people” for his administration’s arming and financing of Nicaraguan insurgents.
