WASHINGTON, D.C. – Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines today issued the following statement on the passing of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright:


“We have lost an extraordinary leader of substance, style, and conviction with the passing of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Her legacy lives on in the men and women she inspired and mentored over the years in national security and foreign policy, myself included. I hope we can do her justice. Her integrity, pragmatism, and intellect live on in the institutions she enriched throughout her lifetime of service in government, academia, and non-governmental organizations."


Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence Dr. Stacey Dixon discussed how the IC is addressing disinformation as part of the panel, “Disinformation: How Spies Can Help Find Truth,” at the annual South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas on March 14, 2022.
