Jeffrey Kruse confirmed to lead DIA

On December 6, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines issued the following statement:

“Congratulations to Lieutenant General Jeffrey Kruse, United States Air Force, on his confirmation as the 23rd Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)! Backed by extensive experience and an extraordinary commitment to ethics in defense of country, the Intelligence Community is very fortunate to have him lead our Defense Intelligence enterprise amidst the increasingly complex threat environment we face today. Though I will sorely miss Jeff’s sage advice as my Advisor for Military Affairs, it will be wonderful to work with him in his new role, as he leads the truly exceptional DIA workforce.

I would also like to thank Lieutenant General Scott Berrier, United States Army, on his remarkable leadership of DIA over the past few years during an exceptionally defining and dynamic period for the security of both our nation and world. Scotty is as amazing of a leader as he is a human being, and I wish him nothing but the best in his hard-earned and well-deserved retirement.”
