Clapper to be nominated for Defense intel post

The White House announced today that President Bush intends to nominate James Clapper Jr. to serve as undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence.

Clapper, a retired lieutenant general with the Air Force, currently is the chief operating officer of government services with DFI International, a Washington D.C., management consulting firm.

Before joining DFI, Clapper was director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. He was forced out in early 2006 by then-Defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld after he testified before Congress in 2004 that the agency would not be compromised by a reorganization of the intelligence community that moved NGA from Pentagon control to reporting to the new Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Prior to his tenure at NGA, Clapper served as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
