President Barack Obama announces James Clapper, right, as his choice to oversee the nation’s 16 spy agencies as director of national intelligence, during a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, Saturday, June 5, 2010. Clapper, currently the Pentagon’s top intelligence official, is a retired Air Force three-star general who, pending Senate approval, will replace Dennis Blair who resigned as director of national intelligence after frequent clashes with the White House. The position of national intelligence director was created in 2004 in the wake of intelligence failures that led to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. (AP Photo/J.
