Statement by Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper on the confirmation of John Brennan as the CIA Director

March 7, 2013


On behalf of the entire Intelligence Community, I want to congratulate John Brennan on his Senate confirmation today as the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

John is a career intelligence professional with more than 25 years of service with the CIA. His reputation as a strong leader, deep understanding of the challenges facing our community, and his impeccable integrity make him an excellent choice to return to the Agency as its Director.

I would also like to thank Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein for her leadership during the confirmation process.

I congratulate John and his family and look forward to our continued partnership.
