Under pressure from the White House, the FBI has agreed to adopt the recommendations of a presidential commission and will allow the director of national intelligence, John Negroponte, to help choose a powerful new intelligence chief at the FBI, Bush administration officials say.
The intelligence chief would manage the bureau's national-security and counterterrorism divisions, as well as its recently created Directorate of Intelligence, which coordinates the bureau's information-gathering efforts.
Rather than accepting a change in the law, Negroponte compromised with Hunter and promised to meet with him personally before shifting Defense Department employees. Negroponte's office has called his meeting with the chairman "very satisfactory."
