White House creates post to analyze security leaks

December 2, 2010 - Washington

The Obama administration has created a position to investigate the gaps in security that led to the WikiLeaks release of diplomats' private conversations, the White House announced.

According to Politico, Russell Travers, the deputy director of the National Counter-terrorism Center, will be the national security staff's senior adviser for information access and security policy.

He will "lead a comprehensive effort to identify and develop the structural reforms needed in light of the Wikileaks breach," the White House said in a statement.

The White House also announced that the President's Intelligence Advisory Board "will take an independent look at the means by which the Executive Branch as a whole shares and protects classified information."
