Bob Silverman, President, American Foreign Service Association

One of the toughest jobs in the State Department these days might be ambassador to Russia. That job was conferred just days ago on veteran career diplomat John Tefft. He arrives in Moscow when tensions between Russia and the United States are as high as they've been since the Cold War. Bob Silverman is president of the American Foreign Service Association. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss how Tefft will have to go about his job.

CIA clarifies Brennan's Ukraine visit

With all the misinformation flying around about what's happening in Ukraine, the CIA is disconnecting Director John Brennan's weekend visit to Kiev from the crackdown in eastern Ukraine. "The claim that Director Brennan encouraged Ukrainian authorities to conduct tactical operations inside Ukraine is completely false. Like other senior U.S. officials, Director Brennan strongly believes that a diplomatic solution is the only way to resolve the crisis between Russia and Ukraine," said a CIA spokesperson in a statement.
