The dealmaker quoted?

Christopher Hill '74, Assistant U.S. Secretary of State and the person who the article calls "the public face of an extraordinary 180-degree policy shift on North Korea, from confrontation to accommodation."

The article, "Mid-Level Official Steered U.S. Shift On North Korea," details Hill's unusual access to the president, noting that Hill often joins breakfast meetings that include Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Vice President Dick Cheney and National Security Advisor Stephen J. Hadley.

Washington Post writer Glenn Kessler also notes that "Through deft use of public appearances and the news media, Hill also has become an international figure in his own right."
