Appointees spark controversy

: "Negroponte has claimed he never saw any credible evidence of human rights abuses by Battalion 316. But Jimmy Carter’s Honduran ambassador, Jack Binns, has said he prepared a briefing book for Negroponte that addressed the rise of abuses by the military.

Honduran newspapers carried hundreds of stories about the abuses at the time, and a recent Los Angeles Times investigation concluded that Negroponte quashed several reports of Honduran military abuses, “including one U.S.-backed operation that resulted in the execution of nine prisoners and the disappearance of an American priest,” Fr. James Carney."

And now this bozo is in charge of protecting us against terrorist attacks...I feel safe.
