Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden will be named on Monday as the next chief of the CIA, officials said, as the White House began battling back against criticism that a military officer would lead the civilian spy agency. Recognizing concerns about military leadership of the CIA, a civilian agency, the White House plans to move aside the agency's No. 2 official, Vice Admiral Albert Calland III, who took over as deputy director less than a year ago. Other personnel changes also are likely, a senior administration official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the changes are not ready to announce. Stephen Hadley, the national security adviser to President George W. Bush, made the rounds of morning television shows to defend Hayden's selection. "This is a man who has broad experience in the intelligence business," he said.
