Washington (AFP) - The head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency and his deputy will step down later this year, officials said Wednesday, but denied reports they were being forced out.
Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, who had served as director of the DIA since July 2012, and deputy David Shedd, said in a joint memo to employees that "they will depart the agency and retire by early Fall 2014," according to an agency statement.
The DIA is undergoing dramatic changes under a plan to deploy more spies in the field, and Flynn's efforts to speed up the transformation proved "disruptive," according to his critics, the Post reported.
