New U.S. ambassador to Egypt appointed

President Bush on Tuesday named a new ambassador to Egypt, Scripps Newspaper Group – Online reported the same day. Margaret Scobey, a career foreign service officer and former ambassador to Syria, will assume the post.

Scobey was recalled from Syria in 2005 when the country’s relationship with U.S. became further stained over the assignation of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri – a crime for which the U.S. believed Damascus was responsible.

Scobey has additional experience in the Middle East, having served in Israel, Kuwait, Pakistan, and Yemen. She was also the deputy chief of the U.S. mission in Saudi Arabia.
