I thought
you might find the Iron Lady's reported comments at Georgetown vis a vis paying back debt, etc interesting... I've never heard of her being so publicly supportive of fast-tracking Liberia's debt relief before (she always seemed to be going along with HIPC, at least publicly)... I wonder if the Jubilee/Africa Action activist phone-calls to [World Bank President Paul] Wolfowitz last week were encouraging to her.

Here are some stories about the phone call action and Jubilee's pressure vis immediate debt cancellation...
