US President Donald Trump has named a former army general John Abizaid as ambassador to Saudi Arabia, a post that has been vacant since Joseph Westphal left in January 2017.
Abizaid is prominent for his stint as the longest-chief of US Central Command – of which the Middle East is part – starting shortly after the Iraq war in 2003 all the way through to 2007.
