Going back 50 years, the agency’s practice was to publicly identify and praise most of Archibald’s predecessors. Why? Paradoxically, it’s a job that requires a certain degree of public exposure. The spy chief’s duties require him to visit regularly with the FBI, NSA and the dozen other branches of the U.S. intelligence community, to testify to congressional oversight committees and to meet with his foreign counterparts, either here or in some of the world’s most dangerous neighborhoods. Nearly two dozen of his predecessors have been known to the public. It’s too bad they’re going all black-cloak with Archibald, because after the bumpy tenures of the past few people in that job, the agency could benefit from letting people know that it has a “quiet professional” at the helm, as one former colleague put it, a figure of continuity at an agency that has changed CIA directors six times since 2003.[1]
