Jack Davis, dean of analysts and integrity czar for the CIA, was recognized today with a lifetime achievement award from the International Association for Intelligence Education (IAIE), Dr. Bill Spracher Chapter Chair presiding. After laudatory anecdotes from several senior members, Jack offered a few comments centered around his learning over time that intelligence professionals must not only be doctors to the policy client, but lawyers as well. Implicit in his remarks and his lifetime of service as a trusted briefer was a third role, that of  teacher. During the Q&A he was asked about a fourth role, positing a corrupt government, that of priest.
