CIA names new head of clandestine service
By The Post's Peter Finn in Checkpoint Washington:
John D. Bennett, a CIA veteran who served as station chief in Pakistan until 2009 and who has had numerous other overseas postings, has been appointed head of the agency's National Clandestine Service, Director Leon E. Panetta announced Wednesday.
Bennett, a former Marine and Harvard graduate, had retired in May after a nearly 30-year career at the CIA, but was coaxed back to take charge of the service, which runs human intelligence and covert operations. Among other posts, Bennett previously served as chief of Special Activities Division, the agency's covert paramilitary unit.
As head of the clandestine service, he will succeed Michael J. Sulick, who is retiring.
