If Joe Biden is successful in this reported appointment — it would make Darrell Blocker the first Black person ever to hold the position of CIA director. Blocker has a long and glorious resume throughout the intelligence community; various countries, and is respected almost universally.
According to reports, Blocker has received at least 2 CIA medals and retired in 2018 after more than 32 years as an operative. During his storied career, he was Chief of Station in at least 2 different places and lived in everywhere from Pakistan to Uganda for career purposes.
If he comes out of retirement for this position —- he will be one of the longest serving operatives in history.
