Mr. Kevin Rousseau, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College Distinguished Chair for National Intelligence Studies, conducted a presentation on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the latest InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Jan. 18, in the Eisenhower Auditorium of the Lewis and Clark Center on Fort Leavenworth.
Rousseau briefed on the CIA’s mission as part of national security before taking questions from attendees. During his presentation, Rousseau emphasized the importance of the CIA’s Associate Director for Military Affairs (ADMA), which coordinates, plans, executes and sustains worldwide activities that support CIA and Department of Defense interaction based on priorities established by the Director of CIA to achieve National Security objectives. Rousseau has had many roles in the CIA, and most recently served as the briefer to the ADMA.
