The senior State Department positions for Latin America and for refugee affairs have not been filled. (Gillian Brockell/The Washington Post)Next stop: South Sudan, a country that came into existence in 2011 largely thanks to U.S. diplomacy. The State Department used to have a special envoy for South Sudan; the post is vacant. Both George W. Bush and Obama took a personal interest in South Sudan. Forget about an American envoy: Even the senior State Department post for the region has, as elsewhere, no permanent appointee.
