Dennis C. Blair to lead CIA

President-elect Barack Obama has selected retired Navy Adm. Dennis C. Blair to serve as the nation's next intelligence director but has not concluded his search for someone to lead the CIA, according to government officials familiar with the selection process.

Blair, 61, was at the helm of Pacific Command headquartered at Camp Smith on O'ahu from February 1999 to May 2002, when he retired after 34 years in the Navy. He has a reputation of supporting diplomatic and political efforts instead of military confrontation.
