On April 14, DNI Clapper issued a statement on the president’s nomination of Susan S. Gibson to be the inspector general of the National Reconnaissance Office.
I am very pleased the President intends to nominate Susan as the first presidentially-appointed and Senate-confirmed inspector general for NRO. Her many years of service and deep knowledge of the Intelligence Community, combined with her experience in the ODNI Office of General Counsel, make her the right choice to assume this vital role.
Susan has done an exceptional job over the past decade as one of our original plank holders responsible for standing up ODNI. I’m grateful to see someone who has contributed so much to the Intelligence Community will be able to offer her valuable legal and leadership expertise in a new way.
Congratulations to Susan on her selection, and I look forward to working with her in her new position.
James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence
