Army's Noonan joins consultancy

The Army's former senior intelligence officer has become a principal at Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va., responsible for management and technical consulting with national intelligence agencies.

Lt. Gen. Robert W. Noonan, who retired as Army deputy chief of staff for intelligence in June, has argued that intelligence should be more accessible to commanders in the field.

'Information does not equal knowledge,' Noonan said during a meeting with reporters last year. 'A flood of information to commanders can overwhelm them. We need to figure out how to sift out the thing that answers the commander's needs and get it to him faster.'

Prior to joining Booz Allen Hamilton, Noonan had served as deputy chief of staff for intelligence since 2000. He also had been director of intelligence for the U.S. Central Command and a former commander of the Army Intelligence and Security Command.
