U.S. Ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein speaks during an interview in New York October 18, 2012. It has to be one of the toughest jobs around - trying to sell U.S. businesses on the investment potential of one of the poorest nations on Earth, a country battered by Islamist militants who bomb, assassinate and kidnap.
