John Brennan, the former C.I.A. case officer who served as the first director of the National Counterterrorism Center, will report to Marine Gen. James Jones, the retired SACEUR/EUCOM Commander who will serve as national security adviser.
This reflects changes underway for the NSC-HSC structure at the White House. As written about here and recommended in reports from the Center for American Progress, Congressional Research Service, and elsewhere, the HSC staff will become part of an expanded National Security Council staff, which will have a second deputy (Brennan) reporting to the national security adviser (Jones) for counterterrorism and, presumeably, homeland security.
I’ll update this more later today as I get the details.
