Watching US involvement in Kyrgyzstan, I was a bit confused recently; the timeline of contacts didn't quite add up to me.
In the early afternoon yesterday, Roza Otunbayeva, the acting leader of the country, tweeted:
Felt really warm to receive a phone call from long time friend Madeleine Albright! Briefed her on the latest situation.The timestamp on that is 2.20 pm.
The State Department then tweeted, "#SecClinton spoke to Ms. Roza Otunbayeva to support efforts of #Kyrgyz administration to resolve #Kyrgyzstan's current political problems." That timestamp lists "six hours ago," which would put it at about 3.30 pm as I write this at 9.40.
Did a former Secretary of State contact Ms Bayeva before the current Secretary?
