Dear Col. Lang:

When he was appointed as the envoy, Holbrooke had said something I found striking. He turned to look at John Negroponte who was present at the announcement and said, "Maybe we'll win this one, Ponte." As I recall both men were in Saigon as FSOs in their younger years.

I didn't know what that meant at the time, but I wonder how many old hands from Vietnam share that sentiment.
