More Personnel Changes

The US Ambassador to Iraq, the Honorable Zalmay Khalilzad, will shortly be appointed UN Ambassador, ABC News reports (via Drudge). Perhaps Ambassador Khalilzad would consider that a promotion. I wouldn't.
A vacancy in Baghdad. With General George Casey (US commander in Iraq) on the outs, the President is evidently making a clean sweep of the country team in Iraq.
Former Spook at In from the Cold disagrees with me, and he's mighty well informed, but I still like my earlier prognostications on Ambassador Negroponte being turned into a sort of super-diplo-spook Czar for Iraq.
