DCI Statement on the Nomination of CIA Inspector General
February 28, 2002
I am very pleased that President Bush has announced his intent to nominate John L. Helgerson to be the statutory Inspector General (IG) for the CIA. John's breadth and depth of experience at CIA and throughout the Intelligence Community — as well as his sense of fairness and his absolute integrity — make him eminently qualified for this demanding and extraordinarily important position. I am confident that once confirmed by the Senate, he will do an outstanding job, approaching every aspect of his work with vigor, independence, and fairness.
