The Bush administration on Tuesday nominated Zalmay Khalizad, the ambassador to Afghanistan, to become the new ambassador to Iraq.

The announcement was expected; senior administration officials said weeks ago that the decision had been made.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Khalizad, a voluble, blunt Afghan-American who served on the National Security Council staff during President George W. Bush's first term, "has a proven record of building consensus and achieving results in very tough situations." If confirmed, Khalizad, 54, would replace John Negroponte, selected by Bush to be the nation's first director of national intelligence.
During an appearance on Tuesday afternoon with Rice at the State Department, he pledged to "work with all Iraqis, all sects, all ethnic groups, men and women, to accelerate success in Iraq."
