The L&H is proud to present the American Diplomat and Former Ambassador his Excellency Ryan Crocker. Crocker was the US Ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Kuwait and Lebanon. He is a world leading expert on the middle east and was regarded as "America's Lawrence of Arabia" by Former President Bush. After 9/11, with the help of the Iranian government, he worked to capture dozens of Al-Qaeda operatives. Days before leaving office, President Bush went to the State Department and paid homage to Crocker, awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award. We are delighted to present him with the James Joyce award
