Two Officials, Two Visions of Public Diplomacy -- And The Israeli-Turkish On-Camera Dust-up

Per our class discussion this morning, here are the links to remarks by Jim Glassman and Judith McHale that illustrate their different strategic visions for U.S. public diplomacy. Glassman's speech to an April 2009 conference of military information operations professionals is here; McHale, the current Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, spoke at Harvard last September.

Meanwhile, the Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister's misadventure in publicly scolding Turkey's ambassador to Israel, in front of a bank of TV cameras, is covered in this wire service piece.
A classic example of overplaying one's hand...! Thanks to Joe for having spotted this item.
