The Ambassador - Ambassadors of the United States - Netflix

The diplomats serving as ambassadors of the United States of America to individual nations of the world, to international organizations, and ambassadors-at-large change regularly for various reasons, such as reassignment or retirement. The United States Department of State provides lists of these ambassadors which are updated approximately monthly. (A recent list {pdf} was issued on May 7, 2018.) A listing by country of past chiefs of mission is maintained by the Office of the Historian of the U.S. Department of State. The ambassadors are nominated by the President and confirmed by the United States Senate. An ambassador can be appointed during a recess, but he or she can only serve as ambassador until the end of the next session of Congress unless subsequently confirmed. Ambassadors serve “at the pleasure of the President”, meaning they can be dismissed at any time. An ambassador may be a career Foreign Service Officer (career diplomat - CD) or a political appointee (PA). In most cases, career foreign service officers serve a tour of approximately three years per ambassadorship whereas political appointees customarily tender their resignations upon the inauguration of a new president. As embassies fall under the State Department's jurisdiction, ambassadors answer directly to the Secretary of State.
