WASHINGTON: The current chiefs of National Intelligence and the CIA expect to be replaced when Barack Obama takes over as US president on January 20, a U.S. daily reported Wednesday.
Several senior Democrats oppose keeping National Intelligence director Mike McConnell and Central Intelligence Agency director Michael Hayden in their jobs, the newspaper said, citing unnamed senior US intelligence officials.
Names being floated in the media as possible replacements include retiring Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, and John Brennan, a former top CIA official who heads Obama's intelligence transition team. Both McConnell and Hayden want to remain on the job, the daily reported.
