CIA Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Becoming the George Bush Center for Intelligence

Today we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the naming of our headquarters compound: the George Bush Center for Intelligence.

The CIA Headquarters compound was renamed for President George Herbert Walker Bush on April 26, 1999, to honor his unique role in Agency history. President Bush is the only former Director of Central Intelligence to become President of the United States.

Director Haspel, CIA Chief Operating Office Andrew Makridis, and the workforce held a small celebration this morning to mark the anniversary of this historic occasion.

Former Director of Central Intelligence, George Tenet, who presided over the original naming ceremony, returned to deliver remarks.
