Am not referring to Obama’s statement about Suu Kyi, but about the little known White House Deputy Chief of Staff Mona Sutphen as the WP reports:

She headed for the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok, where she managed the human rights portfolio for Burma, then on to an assignment helping implement the Dayton Peace Accords, which ended the war in Bosnia. After a hiatus to study at the London School of Economics, she went to work for then-U.N. Ambassador Bill Richardson, whom she met during her work on Burma
