Gen. David Petraeus Will Take Helm of CIA After Leon Panetta Moves to Pentagon


Leon Panetta to Secretary of Defense, David Petraeus to CIA, Say Sources

Not everyone is happy about the changes. A former top intelligence official -- a high-profile figure in the intelligence world -- tells ABC's Jonathan Karl that David Petraeus is an "awful" choice for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency because he won't fit in with the culture at CIA.

The moves of Panetta and Petraeus have been rumored for months, but only recently took shape. And the moves would have seemed fantastic not so long ago. Former President Bush, interviewed this morning on "Good Morning America", asked if it was no more than gossip.

ABC's Z. Byron Wolf contributed to this report.
