Thanks for the Memories, Nikki

The Washington Free Beacon bids a fond farewell to departing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

For two years, she faced down Israel-bashing, led a global sanctions regime against North Korea, stood tall against the Russians, and provided a strong voice of moral, forceful American leadership in the world.

A former South Carolina governor believed by some critics to be too inexperienced in foreign policy to navigate the difficult terrain of the U.N., she proved doubters wrong during her widely praised tenure.
