DCIA Haspel Visits Auburn University

CIA Director Gina Haspel visited Auburn University in Alabama yesterday, where she delivered remarks and participated in a Q&A moderated by retired Army Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, Auburn’s chief operating officer and former DIA director.

“As I look back on my first year as Director,” said Haspel, “I am more in awe of the men and women at CIA than ever before. And I know that Auburn graduates also know a thing or two about serving our country, having made invaluable contributions over the years by signing up for the tough jobs—as warfighters, astronauts, and, of course, as intelligence officers.”

Director Haspel told the Auburn students the story of Mike Spann, an Auburn alumnus, CIA officer, and the first American to die in the line of duty in Afghanistan after 9/11. She also talked about her 34-year career at the Agency, some of her leadership team’s accomplishments over this last year, and her priorities for the future.
