The National Intelligence [sic] Director is resigning:
National Intelligence Director John Negroponte will resign to become deputy secretary of state, a government official said Wednesday night.
Negroponte took over in 2005 as the nation's first intelligence chief, responsible for overseeing all 16 U.S. spy agencies. He will return to his roots as a career diplomat to become the No. 2 to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the official said.
Does this mean we can expect US-sponsored death squads in Iraq?
