Ok I am going to pull a Bush here
Appearently I have been left out on the loop on this, or I just haven't been paying attention. What the hell is Negroponte?

1. Current US Ambassador to the UN, nominated Ambassador to Iraq...
... and former Ambassador to Honduras during the Reagan Administration, during which he was responsible for overseeing the setup of Nicaraguan Contra training sites and bases in Honduras.

9. The UN Human Rights Commission....
Being booted from it was in large part a protest for Negroponte being appointed UN Ambassador.

6. Google is your friend.
It comes in handy for researching names, quotes, poems and such.
