"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

It looks like they have some cool documentaries and films...in particular there's a documentary showing Friday and Saturday night on Wole Soyinka (Wole Soyinka: Child of the Forest) who some of you may remember from an earlier POTW entry (http://fuuo.blogspot.com/2010/06/potw-in-small-hours-by-wole-soyinka.html). He was the first African to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.
