Key CIA oversight position empty for 14 months now
CIA goes 14 months without internal watchdog - Yahoo! News
Or does this negate that headline?
Helgerson left in March 2009 and later retired. His deputy, Patricia A. Lewis, had served as acting inspector general until federal law forced her to return to her old post. She continues to run the office in the deputy position.
The Senate's intelligence leadership — Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Kit Bond, R-Mo. — wrote to President Barack Obama pressing him to fill the position.
"While the deputy inspector general has very capably led this office in an acting capacity, this function needs to be directed by an official formally endorsed by the president and the Congress," the senators wrote in late April. "For this reason, we believe it is important for you to promptly nominate a permanent replacement."
