U.S. Iraq Embassy Chief Resigns

In Iraq, the top official overseeing construction of the U.S. embassy has resigned. Retired Army Maj. Gen. Charles Williams is the third senior State Department official to step down amidst ongoing diplomatic and contracting woes in Iraq. The State Department’s inspector general and head of diplomatic security also have resigned. Williams had promised Congress the massive U.S. embassy would open last September. But construction is ongoing amidst allegations of shoddy work and unlawful contracting.
