SSCI Confirmation Hearings

02.17.06 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The records of two confirmation hearings conducted by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence have just been published: that of Benjamin A. Powell to be General Counsel in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and that of John S. Redd to be Director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Each contains some interesting details about the nominees, and some useful questions for the record presenting their views of their respective positions (in the large PDF versions here [Powell] and here [Redd] only).

The hearing record for Mr. Powell, the new ODNI General Counsel, also features (in the PDF version) a reprint of a technical paper he co-authored in the journal “Computers and Chemical Engineering” entitled “Adaptive Networks for Fault Diagnosis and Process Control.”
