Counterterrorism director Leiter to resign
Thursday - 6/9/2011, 2:16pm EDT
Federal News Radio
National Counterterrorism Center Director Michael Leiter is resigning. Leiter has served as director for three years this month, and was acting director for seven months prior to his confirmation.
Leiter joined NCTC as a principal deputy director in 2007, coming from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, where he served as deputy chief of staff under John Negroponte.
As director of the NCTC, Leiter was responsible for coordinating analysis of terrorism-related information and intelligence. The NCTC also conducts planning of counterterrorism activities.
Leiter is expected to leave in the next month. This is the latest in a series of changes within the Obama administration's national security team. With the resignation of Defense Secretary Robert Gates, President Obama named CIA director Leon Panetta as his replacement. General David Petraeus, has been tapped to replace Panetta.
