Los Angeles Times – Ecuador expels U.S. ambassador
Date: Apr 6, 2011
The White House says that Ecuador’s expulsion of the U.S. ambassador to Ecuador is unjustified:
Mark Toner, a State Department spokesman, said Hodges was one of the department’s most experienced ambassadors and that the administration considered her expulsion unjustified. He said the department had not decided whether it would reciprocate by expelling Ecuador’s ambassador, or take other action.
