Statement by Acting DCI John E. McLaughlin
August 10, 2004
I congratulate Chairman Goss on his nomination. He is no stranger to the rigors and complexities of foreign intelligence in our democracy. And he understands the crucial role intelligence plays in defending our freedoms.
I have known Porter Goss for many years. He is a friend—one who appreciates the vital contributions that the dedicated men and women of American Intelligence make each day to protecting our country.
