President to Name New Counterterrorism Chief

Chris Miller to be tapped as director.

The White House announced that President Trump plans to nominate Chris Miller to be the National Counterterrorism director. The current acting director, Russell Travers, was offered a different position by the Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grennell, but decided he would retire instead.

Miller is a former Army Special Forces officer and counterterrorism adviser to President Trump.

A statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said, “Acting DNI Grennell and the DNI leadership have been discussing the many reform recommendations previously made by other directors. Our hope is that these reforms will posture NCTC to lead the counterterrorism mission into the future.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials within the National Intelligence agency as they look to recommendations for reforms to improve the intelligence community on behalf of Americans.
  • For Chris Miller as he undergoes the nomination process to take on the directorship of the counterterrorism unit.
  • For Russell Travers as he completes his work and prepares for his retirement.
