The New York Times reports that experienced CIA official Michael D’Andrea is to run the agency’s Iran operations.
The newspaper says this is the first major sign that the Trump administration is invoking the hard line that he took against Iran during his electoral campaign.
D’Andrea, a convert to Islam, is said to have been responsible for the American drone strike campaign that killed thousands of Islamist militants and hundreds of civilians.
