Not that there's anything wrong with that

Doesn't "present at the birth of our adopted son" mean that there was an arrangement with the birth parents ahead of time that the son would be put up for adoption? It was also nice of the Middle East in general and the Iranians in particular to generate a need for a David Miliband visit to see Condi just when he would be needing to pick up a baby anyway [apparently Miliband had returned to London and then had to leave again for the birth in the US].

Just to be clear. Having a child and finding a good home for a child are worthy enterprises and different people choose different ways to do it. But transnational adoptions by politicians are surely worth a raised eyebrow, if only of the Roger Moore-in-his-later-James-Bond-film variety.
