Filed under: Intelligence and Info-Sharing — by Christian Beckner on March 15, 2006

The White House has nominated a replacement for John Russack, who resigned in January as head of the Information Sharing Environment, a departure detailed in this post. From the White House website:

The President intends to designate Thomas E. McNamara, of the District of Columbia, to be Program Manager of the Information Sharing Environment.

The Baltimore Sun previewed this appointment in a story two weeks ago, and provided a biographical sketch of McNamara:

McNamara is currently serving as a special adviser to [Director of National Intelligence John] Negroponte. He held several security posts at the State Department and the White House in previous administrations. He returned to the government after the Sept. 11 attacks where he was a special adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism at the State Department. Before that, he was president of the Americas Society and the Council of the Americas, nonprofit groups that promote democracy in the Western Hemisphere.
