Just another one of those "Up Yours" appointments

If you thought Bolton, Rice, Hughes, and Wolfowitz were the last people in the world qualified for their positions, get a load of this –

Trophy Hunting Advocate Named Acting Director of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Link:

http://www.hsus.org/press_and_publicati ... rvice.html

"Interior Secretary Gale Norton has named Matthew J. Hogan to be acting director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Norton announced the appointment yesterday, following last week's resignation of Director Steve Williams. Hogan was formerly the chief lobbyist for Safari Club International (SCI), an extreme trophy hunting organization that advocates the killing of rare species around the world.

"Having a Safari Club lobbyist in charge, even temporarily, of the federal agency that is supposed to protect endangered species is precisely the wrong course to pursue for any Administration," said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS. "Someone with a true wildlife conservation ethic, not an allegiance to the trophy hunting industry, should be nominated by President Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate for the permanent director position as soon as possible."
