Message from the Director: Holiday Greetings
Statement to Employees by Director John Brennan: Holiday Greetings
December 19, 2013
I want to thank you for the hard work and distinguished service you have devoted to our Agency and Nation over the past year. In every Directorate, here and overseas, you have helped gather intelligence, provide analysis, and protect our country against a wide and challenging array of foreign threats. Your knowledge, skill, and dedication have made all our fellow citizens safer. As one year ends and another begins, I feel very fortunate to be back at CIA once again, serving with this great workforce and engaged in our vital mission.
Please remember our brothers and sisters, civilian and military, who are serving far from home this holiday season. They and their families are in our thoughts and prayers, and their sacrifice is deeply appreciated.
On behalf of Avril, Meroe, and the entire leadership team, I wish you and those you love—our entire CIA family—all the warmth and cheer of the holidays, and a New Year that brings greater peace in the world.
