Spy chief Blair announces resignation

Spy chief Blair announces resignation 20 May 2010 Intelligence chief Dennis Blair announced on Thursday that he is stepping down in the first major shake-up of President Barack Obama's national security team. Blair's 16-month tenure as director of national intelligence (DNI) has been marked by infighting with the CIA and sharp criticism over the intelligence community's failure to prevent a botched Christmas Day attempt to blow up a U.S. airliner. James Clapper, under secretary of defense for intelligence, was expected to step into Blair's role at least on an interim basis, according to a source close to the White House deliberations.
