Bush Nominates Convict to be First Director of National Intelligence

by Brendan Lalor

In yet another loss for human rights and peace, Bush nominated John Negroponte — his previous ambassador to the U.N. and recently to Iraq — to be the first director of national intelligence. Negroponte is a Reagan-era criminal who illegally subverted democracy in Latin America. ThereItIs.org’s previous articles on Negroponte are worth another look, for instance, “Negroponte, a Torturer’s Friend.”
