Its pride dented by the Snowden and WikiLeaks scandals, and its reputation damaged by his predecessor's errors of judgement, Weber has been given the job due to his reputation for facing challenges and facilitating change.
His eyes were bulging and red-veined. He spoke English with a German accent. His passport said he was from Zurich.
