Oh joy.
U.S. President Barack Obama said Wednesday he has picked California- based lawyer and major fundraiser John Roos as the next U.S. ambassador to Japan.


If approved by the Senate, Roos, 54, one of Obama's top fundraisers during his presidential campaign, will serve as point man for U.S. policy on Japan, a key Asian ally.


Roos is almost unknown among U.S. and Japanese officials and experts. As he has no diplomatic and security experience, some doubt has been raised about his qualifications at a time when North Korea's nuclear and missile threats are mounting.
