this is the most chaotic management structure imaginable.  the administration already has a czar for iran, iraq, afghanistan, terrorism, middle east peace, and the middle east generally.  and that is on top of the secretary of state and the ambassador to the UN, who reports directly to the president.  so, what the hell?  let's throw another self important washington hack in there just for kicks.

there is NO WAY this mass of brawling egos will ever accomplish anything other than undermining the other people involved.  turf wars, leaks to the media, backstairs subterfuge, and general chaos is all that this will bring.

and it's already happening, with emanuel and axelrod torpedoing mcchrystal and gates on the surge.

White House sees possibility for a larger role for Kerry in Afghanistan

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) will have "an enormously important role" in Afghanistan and the administration’s policy there, according to a White House official.

Kerry, who is scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama at the White House on Wednesday morning, was instrumental in convincing Afghan President Hamid Karzai to agree to a runoff election. An independent election audit found Karzai did not receive more than 50 percent of the vote in the presidential election.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Wednesday that after Kerry spent "time and energy" in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the president is "anxious to get his read on the situation in both countries ... as well as what he heard from our commanders over there."
