US: Obama chooses new counterterror chief
Matthew Olsen, if confirmed by the Senate, would direct the National Counterterrorism Center.

Washington: President Barack Obama's choice for his next counterterrorism chief is a lawyer and former prosecutor with extensive experience in intelligence matters for the US government, the White House announced on Friday.

Matthew Olsen, if confirmed by the Senate, would direct the National Counterterrorism Center, an agency born in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US.

That agency is charged with analysing and integrating information gathered across the intelligence community and then providing assessments to the president and other senior policymakers.

Olsen, 49, currently serves as the general counsel for the National Security Agency. He has also held high-level roles in overseeing intelligence matters at the Justice Department and the FBI. From 2009 to 2010, Olsen directed the task force that, on Obama's orders, reviewed the intelligence on detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.
