Obama fills key religious-freedom post

June 18, 2010

Nearly 17 months after taking office, President Barack Obama announced his appointee for the position of ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom on June 15. Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, who has served as the senior pastor of Bronx Christian Fellowship Baptist Church in New York, advised the Clinton administration on race relations. Some religious freedom advocates expressed disappointment that President Obama did not appoint an ambassador with foreign policy experience.
