Why the secrecy before the selection? And why Negroponte? Former US Ambassador to the UN during the build up to the war, and then named as Ambassador to Iraq. What does he have to offer the position?

Well it's really not a question of what he has to offer Phreak, this post is just a pat on the back for all his bad times having to deal with Iraq. It's kinda like the friends of the President are made ambassadors to countries, the better guy you are the bigger country you get.
n the hearings on Negroponte's appointment to his current post as UN ambassador, he was questioned by Senate Foreign Relations Committee staff members on whether he had acquiesced to human rights abuses by death squads funded and partly trained by the Central Intelligence Agency. Negroponte testified that he did not believe the abuses were part of a deliberate Honduran government policy. "To this day," he said, "I do not believe that death squads were operating in Honduras."

I am not familiar with John Negroponte, but from reading the article, it looks like he may have the background it will take to perform this new position.

Doesn't the constitution say "no one can be refurred to with a Title of Nobility" if they work for U.S. Government, why is he called "Tzar"
