Tueller, a native of Utah and graduate of Harvard, has held a number of previous roles throughout the MENA region and most recently served as U.S. Ambassador to Yemen.
The U.S. mission to Baghdad is awaiting his arrival at times of heightened security in the region over the U.S. recent response to potential threats from neighboring Iran.
