The Director of National Intelligence (DNI), is the United States government official subject to the authority, direction and control of the President, who is responsible under the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 for:

* Serving as the principal adviser to the President, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council for intelligence matters related to national security;

* Serving as the head of the sixteen-member Intelligence Community; and

* Overseeing and directing the National Intelligence Program.

Under , it is desired that either the Director or the Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence be an active duty commissioned officer in the armed forces or have training or experience in military intelligence activities and requirements. Only one of the two positions can be held by an officer at any given time. The statute does not specifically state what rank the commissioned officer will hold during his tenure in either position, but trends lean towards an officer holding the rank of a four-star general or admiral. The most recent DNI was retired Navy four-star admiral, Dennis C. Blair, whose resignation became effective May 28, 2010. On July 20, 2010, the President nominated retired Lt. Gen. James R. Clapper for the position. Clapper was confirmed by the Senate on August 5, 2010, replacing acting Director David C. Gompert.

On July 30, 2008, President Bush issued Executive Order 13470 amending Executive Order 12333 to strengthen the role of the DNI.
