article imageNegroponte to Step Down from Intelligence Post

By Tar De Moutonnoir     Jan 4, 2007 in Politics
John Negroponte, the National Intelligence Director will leave his post to become No. 2 to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
'Negroponte took over in April 2005 as the nation's first intelligence chief, responsible for overseeing all 16 U.S. spy agencies'. The post had been created by Congress in 2004 after a recommendation by the Sept.11th. commission.
This reshuffling is seen as part of a new direction towards Iraqi policy by the Bush administration.
Negroponte is seen as a Bush loyalist, holding several positions in his administration.
He will replace Robert Zoellick who'resigned as Rice's deputy in July to take a position with the Wall Street firm Goldman Sachs'.
