CBS News has hired the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard Myers, to serve as its senior military security analyst, effective immediately.

He now serves as foundation professor of military history and leadership at Kansas State University, as well as the Colin Powell Chair for National Security Leadership, Character and Ethics at National Defense University.
