President George W. Bush has again called on retired Vice Adm John "Scott" Redd, K0DQ, to take on an important assignment. Bush announced June 10 that he was tapping Redd, a well-known DXer and contester, to direct the new National Counter-Terrorism Center. A former commander of US naval forces in the Middle East and a 36-year Navy veteran, Redd, 60, was executive director of the Silberman-Robb presidential commission on US intelligence failures in Iraq. Redd previously served as deputy administrator and chief operating officer of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, for which he received the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public Service. Pending Senate confirmation, Redd will report to National Intelligence Director John Negroponte. He'd replace interim director John Brennan. The National Counter-Terrorism Center is to be the central organization for analyzing and integrating all foreign and domestic intelligence on terrorism and will carry out "strategic operational planning" for domestic and foreign counterterrorism operations.
