Encyclopedia > U.S. National Security Advisor

The Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, commonly referred to as the National Security Advisor, serves as the chief advisor to the President of the United States on national security issues. He or she serves on the National Security Council within the Executive Office of the President.

The National Security Advisor is appointed by the President without confirmation by the Senate. As such he or she is not connected to the bureaucratic politics of the Departments of State and Defense and therefore is able to offer independent advice. The power and role of the National Security Advisor varies from administration to administration.

National Security Advisor Dr. Condoleezza Rice was confirmed on January 26, 2005 by an 85-13 vote in the United States Senate to the post of Secretary of State. She was succeeded by her deputy, Stephen Hadley.
