Bush to tap Afghan envoy for same duty in Baghdad (TERENCE HUNT, March 11, 2005, ASSOCIATED PRESS)

A U.S. diplomat who has worked with reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan is President Bush's choice to be the new American ambassador to Iraq, an administration official said Friday.

Zalmay Khalizad, an Afghan-American, will be nominated to succeed John Negroponte in the post in Baghdad, this source said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no official White House announcement has been made.
