Obama says NSA director a 'patriot,' looking at agency's organization

National Security Agency chief Admiral Michael RogersUS President Barack Obama on Sunday refused to say whether he was considering the dismissal of National Security Agency chief Admiral Michael Rogers, but suggested he was looking at how cyber defenses are organized. “Admiral Rogers is a terrific patriot and has served this country well in a number of positions,” Obama said at a press conference in Peru, amid suggestions that key intelligence and defense officials want him to be dismissed after a series of security breaches. On Saturday, US media reported that top US military and intelligence leaders were pushing Obama to fire Rogers, even as Rogers was apparently being considered for a senior position in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
