WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2012 – Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn has become Defense Intelligence Agency director at a time when 17 intelligence agencies and organizations -- an enterprise whose transformation began on 9/11 -- are maturing into an integrated community that Flynn calls a strategic advantage for the nation.

Flynn became DIA director July 24 in a ceremony at the agency’s headquarters, where he also was named commander of the co-located joint functional component command for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance that is part of U.S. Strategic Command.

“For the United States intelligence community, [the lesson from the tragedy of 9/11] was about transforming ourselves into something much better for the nation,” Flynn told American Forces Press Service.

He also quoted National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper, who said in his vision statement that a fully integrated intelligence community makes the nation more secure.
