Georgetown Professor Honored for Work as National Intelligence Ombuds

Georgetown University Professor Nancy Bernkopf Tucker has received the National Intelligence Achievement Medal for her work as the first-ever Assistant Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analytic Integrity and Standards and Analytic Ombudsman. The award recognizes meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding service to the United States by a member of the intelligence community. As the Intelligence Community’s Analytic Ombudsman, Dr. Tucker served as a confidential resource for intelligence analysts with concerns about the timeliness, politicization and objectivity in intelligence analysis. Tucker now returns to Georgetown as a Professor of History specializing in American-East Asian relations. There is no information on who will assume the position.
