Statement by Secretary Hagel on National Security Personnel Announcements


Location: Unknown

I strongly support President Obama's selection of Susan Rice to be the National Security Advisor and look forward to working closely with her in this new role. Susan Rice has been a very important leader on President Obama's national security team who has helped galvanize the international community to act on some of the toughest security challenges facing the United States. I also look forward to working with President Obama's nominee to succeed her, Samantha Power. She brings years of experience at the White House, in academia, and as a journalist to this critical position.

I want to thank Tom Donilon for his strong leadership and tireless efforts. For the past four and half years, both in my capacity as co-chairman of the President's Intelligence Advisory Board and now as secretary of defense, I have greatly valued Tom's intellect, skill, and dedication to an honest and open process that provides the president with the best advice on the toughest issues. I wish Tom and his family the very best for the future.
