Reid Statement on Confirmation of Iraq Ambassador Christopher Hill

Washington, DCSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid made the following statement today after the Senate confirmed Christopher Hill as the United States’ Ambassador to Iraq:


“General Petraeus has always said that the cure to Iraq’s troubles will be prescribed not militarily, but politically.  The long-overdue confirmation of Ambassador Christopher Hill to be America’s top diplomat in Iraq will bring us closer to that goal and provide critical civilian leadership to secure what our brave troops have accomplished.  Ambassador Hill has successfully tackled some of the most complex diplomatic challenges in the world, and both America and Iraq will benefit from his experience and expertise.”
