The May 1 news article “Top 2 DIA officials will step down” included a wildly inaccurate description of Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn as someone whose “vision . . . was seen as disruptive,” according to one anonymous source, and whose “management style could be chaotic,” according to unnamed “critics.”

I have served with Flynn in peace, crisis and combat and have served in the DIA on multiple tours for multiple directors. Flynn is by far the most inclusive, collaborative, transparent and results-oriented leader I have known in 31 years as an intelligence professional.

DIA has never been better postured for today and tomorrow.
