Bad newsfor those who don’t want Chris Hill to become the next ambassador to Iraq:
Also in Mr. Hill’s corner are three former Iraq ambassadors: Ryan C. Crocker, Zalmay Khalilzad and John D. Negroponte. The three wrote a letter supporting Mr. Hill for the post and urging the Senate to approve his nomination.
“We need his experience during this crucial time in Iraq,” they wrote in the letter. “His previous experiences will serve him greatly when addressing extreme challenges in Iraq.”
One administration official told me, “There’s not another Ryan Crocker.” For Crocker, the highly esteemed diplomat who left Baghdad last month, to vouch for Hill is a surefire way to take the legs out from under the he’s-not-experienced objection.
