His position is commonly referred to as "Director of the CIA", which is certainly one of his responsibilities, but the correct title for the job is Director of Central Intelligence - reflecting the fact that he is the head of all the nation's intelligence agencies, not only the CIA. Deputy Director John McLaughlin has been named as acting Director.
