Briefing by Press Secretary Jay Carney
The White House
President Barack Hussein Obama has chosen Former Senator from the state of Nebraska Charles Hagle as Secretary Of Defense.
A recipient of two Purple Hearts while an infantry squad leader in the Vietnam War, Hagel returned home to start careers in business and politics. He made millions as co-founder of Vanguard Cellular, and served as president of the McCarthy Group, an investment banking firm, and CEO of American Information Systems Inc., a computerized voting machine manufacturer. A member of the Republican Party,
Hagel was first elected to the Senate in 1996. He was reelected in 2002, and retired in 2008. Hagel is currently a professor at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, the chairman of the Atlantic Council, and co-chairman of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. He also serves on a number of board of directors, including that of Chevron Corporation.
In January 2013, major media outlets reported that Hagel would be nominated to serve as Secretary of Defense by President Barack Obama. The nomination is opposed by some members of both the right and left.
President Obama is set to nominate Hagel as his next Secretary Of Defense during the afternoon of January 7, 2013.
For the office of Director Of The Central Intelligence Agency, Mr. John O. Brennan.
John O. Brennan (born September 22, 1955) is chief counter-terrorism advisor to U.S. President Barack Obama; officially his title is Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counter-terrorism, and Assistant to the President. His responsibilities include overseeing plans to protect the country from terrorism and respond to natural disasters, and he meets with the President daily. Previously, he advised Obama on foreign policy and intelligence issues during the 2008 presidential campaign and transition.
Brennan withdrew his name from consideration for Director of the CIA in the new Obama administration over concerns about his support for the use of “enhanced interrogation” techniques by the CIA under President George W. Bush. Instead, Brennan was appointed Deputy National Security Advisor, a position which did not require Senate confirmation.
After leaving government service in 2005, Brennan became CEO of The Analysis Corporation, a security consulting business, and served as chairman of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, an association of intelligence professionals. Brennan’s 25 years with the CIA included work as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counter-terrorism Center.
President Obama is set to nominate Brennan as his next director of the Central Intelligence Agency during the afternoon of January 7, 2013.
