Ex-Pentagon spokesman to move to State Dept

Rear Admiral John Kirby during a media briefing on October 15, 2014 at the Pentagon in Arlington, VirginiaA two-star naval officer and well-respected Pentagon spokesman is moving over to the State Department to brief reporters on US foreign policy and diplomatic affairs, a US official said Wednesday. Rear Admiral John Kirby, who has been the highly-visible face of the Pentagon since December 2013, is to take over as State Department spokesman from Jen Psaki, a US administration official confirmed to AFP. Psaki moved back to the White House last month as director of communications, and her deputy Marie Harf has been serving as the acting spokeswoman in the interim. Kirby announced in February he was stepping down when new Defense Secretary Ashton Carter took up his post indicating that he wanted to have a civilian as the Pentagon’s press spokesperson.
