One of the more valuable political commentaries and analyses I try to find are those written before September 11, 2001. That black day not only changed America’s relationship with the rest of the world, but also polarized all political discussion and destroyed any middle ground.

Seeing as how John Negroponte is our next ambassador to Iraq, I found an interesting article about his role in the Reagan Administration and being nominated as ambassador to the United Nations.

Here’s a timely quote:

Presumably he would have to argue that the United States is a faithful defender of human rights, not one of those hypocritical nations that observe principles only when it suits them.

Now that’s a tough job.
