WASHINGTON, DC – US Ambassador to Armenia Lynne Tracy has received an “F” rating as US Ambassador, based upon her performance across 15 metrics, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).
“The ANCA wants every American Ambassador to Armenia to be successful,” said ANCA Chairman Raffi Hamparian. “Sadly, when America needed a strong Ambassador in Yerevan – our country’s representative let us down. Lynne Tracy has failed on issue after issue – falling far short of the most basic professional expectations of a minimally competent American Ambassador to Armenia.”
“While it may be unfair to hold Ambassador Tracy up to the historic standard set a century ago by Ambassador Morgenthau – it is, today, all too clear that she did not even aspire to his noble example. She remained silent on existential Azerbaijani and Turkish war crimes that threatened the very survival of the Armenian nation. She failed to help Armenians materially or even morally during a time of national crisis. She was absent when needed and on the wrong side when she did choose to engage. Ambassador Tracy is leaving the US-Armenia relationship in worse shape than when she arrived.”
The ANCA calls on the Department of State to recall Ambassador Tracy and urges the incoming Biden administration to reset the US-Armenia relationship on solid footing by nominating a new Ambassador to the US Embassy – Yerevan.
