Aguilar Zinser, former Mexican UN ambassador, dead at 55 in car crash

(BTW, time-warp read from the Agonist BB : a conversation during the UN Iraq Debates with Agular Zinser and others)

EL Universal | June 6

Adolfo Aguilar Zinser, Mexico’s former ambassador to the United Nations, was killed in a car accident Sunday afternoon in Tepoztlan, Morelos, when his vehicle jumped a highway divide.

As ambassador, Aguilar Zinser caused a stir in late 2003 with a comment that the United States treated Mexico as its “back yard.” That assertion raised hackles in the Bush White House and as a result, Aguilar Zinser was ultimately forced out of his job by President Vicente Fox.
