Would he have to retire? Can you have an active duty military guy in charge of the CIA?

He's been in for like 37 or 38 years, I'd imagine that he will have to retire.  Pure speculation though.

Yeah, I'd imagine he would, but would he have to?

Didn't the CIA have an admiral in charge during Klinton's years? Don't remember if he was retired or not.

He is working for free at this point, its time to retire.

It wouldn't be the first time.  The Constitution, contrary to popular belief, does not require military officers to resign their commissions to hold office.

Doesn't have to.  No law says an active duty military office can't be director of CIA.  At this point I don't think he has to worry too much about up or out.

First four directors were all military.  Plus Turner and Hayden.
