"Negroponte Cuts and Runs"

Flashback to Negroponte’s confirmation hearing, 4/24/04:

With our help the people of Iraq can overcome the trauma of Saddam’s brutality and the intimidation of violent extremists seeking to derail the progress they have made so far. But for these policies to succeed, we will need to proceed with resolve, constancy and unity of purpose. If confirmed, I will do my utmost to serve the administration and the American people to these ends.

10 months later, 2/17/05:

Negroponte Named Intelligence Director. Iraq Ambassador Will Return to Washington.
