NPR's Madeleine Brand talks with NPR's David Welna about Tuesday's confirmation hearings for John Negroponte, President Bush's nominee to be the first national intelligence director. Negroponte was ambassador to Iraq and the United Nations, and has been criticized by detractors for what they see as tacit support of right-wing "death squads" during his tenure as ambassador to Honduras during the Reagan administration.
