Trump officials reviewing DOD support to CIA | Defense One

Officials at the Pentagon are reviewing the CIA and their support agenda, specifically if counter-terrorism support should be focused elsewhere. The overall question is whether operators detailed to the spy agency that deal with mostly Middle Eastern affairs should be moved to deal with Russia and China competition instead. Some critics think that pulling support from counterterrorism will hurt all the progress that has been made. Chris Miller, the acting Defense Secretary, sent a written statement to the CIA director Gina Haspel saying, “a longstanding arrangement offering DOD support to the agency is in jeopardy.”
