DCI Statement on FBI Director's Announcement
Director Freeh’s vision, leadership, and commitment have been directly responsible for the unprecedented strategic partnership between the FBI and the CIA. Very significant successes in the counterterrorism and counterintelligence arenas—successes that have helped protect all Americans—are evidence of the remarkable cooperation that has existed between our two agencies in recent years. Director Freeh’s unwavering efforts have forged a bond between law enforcement and intelligence that is unbreakable and will grow over the course of time. He has been a tireless and steadfast supporter of US intelligence, and I know I can speak for every member of the Intelligence Community when I say we will greatly miss his wisdom, energy, passion, and friendship. We wish him and his family the very best in their future pursuits.
