Fulton Armstrong

, National Intelligence Officer for Latin America,

National Intelligence Council

Fulton T. Armstrong was appointed National Intelligence Officer for Latin America on 1 June 2000. Previously Mr. Armstrong served as Chief of Staff of the DCI Crime and Narcotics Center (CNC). Prior to that, he served two terms as a Director for Inter-American Affairs at the National Security Council (1995- 97 and 1998-99) and as Deputy NIO for Latin America (1997-98).

Mr. Armstrong began his government career in 1980 as Legislative Assistant and Press Secretary to US Representative Jim Leach. In 1984-95, he served as analyst, political-economic officer, and manager specializing in Latin America in the both the intelligence and policy communities.

Prior to joining government, Mr. Armstrong worked four years as a reporter, editor, and translator in Taiwan. He earned his B.S. in Linguistics and Spanish at Georgetown University in 1976. He is fluent in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.


There was a senior CIA analyst by the name of Fulton Armstrong who was attacked, using leaks to the press, which alleged that he was disloyal and somehow under the influence of the Cuban government.

Fulton Armstrong's name was mentioned April 11, 2005, during Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings over the nomination of John Bolton to be US ambassador to the UN. Several news stories appeared that raised the question of whether Senators Kerry and Lugar had thus "outted" Armstrong. At the time, however, Armstrong's name already appeared in various places on the web, including at the CIA's own website.

Currently it is unknown why John Bolton was apparently intent on "protecting" information that was already readily available to the public. logo
