Ryan C. Crocker will be the next U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan

No living U.S. diplomat can rival Ryan Crocker's record for service in difficult posts, often at the most trying an dangerous times.  His posts have included Afghanistan (one prior assignment), Iran, Iraq (three times, once as the ambassador), Kuwait (as ambassador), Lebanon (twice, once as ambassador), Pakistan (as ambassador), and Syria (as ambassador).

Last autumn he delivered the inaugural lecture for the Boston University Institute for Iraqi Studies.  Here is the link to the video.
