Which item is missing from this list? April 13, 2004 By Mark Kleiman @markarkleiman John Negroponte, about to be appointed Ambassador to Iraq, speaks Greek, French, Spanish, and Vietnamese, as well as English. Matthew Yglesias and The Grammar Police both note Negroponte’s record of support for death-squad activity, evasion of legal restrictions, and deceit as Ambassador to Honduras. Picky, picky, picky. Typical liberals. Don’t they know that Saddam Hussein was dangerous?
