The mysterious Mr. Negroponte

If you wanted to sum up the brief and obscure tenure of John Dimitri Negroponte as the United States Director of National Intelligence - an office he's now preparing to vacate - you could do worse than to quote the shadowy apparatchik himself:

Intelligence is not a panacea -- far from it.
If your response to that is anything other than a baffled shrug, perhaps you're in a position to explain why Negroponte has stepped down to what certainly looks like a lower-rung job as deputy to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
