Negroponte Is Expected to Be Picked for Iraq Post
By STEVEN R. WEISMAN

WASHINGTON, April 13 — President Bush is expected to select John D. 
Negroponte, a veteran diplomat and current United States representative 
to the United Nations, as ambassador to Iraq once sovereignty is given 
over to a government in Baghdad on June 30, administration officials 
said Tuesday.

Mr. Negroponte's career dates to the war in Vietnam in the 1960's and 
the turmoil of Central America in the 1980's.

Confirmed more easily than expected as ambassador to the United Nations 
shortly after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he had been questioned by 
some for his performance on human rights issues as ambassador in 
Honduras during the civil war in neighboring Nicaragua.
