Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Negroponte has announced the appointment of IWP Professor Norman Bailey to a senior post responsible for hemispheric security.
As Mission Manager for Cuba and Venezuela at the office of the DNI, Dr. Bailey will “lead the intelligence community at a strategic level by integrating collection and analysis, identifying and filling gaps in intelligence, and planning and ensuring implementation of strategies, among other duties,” according to a DNI statement.
”He understands political action, he understands public diplomacy, he understands the psychological aspects of the world we’re in,” former Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Otto Reich tells the Miami Herald.
The office of the DNI has six Mission Managers. The others are responsible for counterintelligence, counterproliferation, counterterrorism, Iran and North Korea.
