WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- The White House has named a new executive secretary for the National Security Council.

John Pray, formerly the director of the White House situation room, was named to the post in a statement from national security adviser Stephen Hadley.

The statement last week said Pray "was responsible for furthering the (situation room's) transformation into a state-of-the-art intelligence and information fusion center dedicated to supporting the president and other senior policymakers."

Pray has more than 27 years of experience "serving in a wide variety of key operational, staff, and command positions" in the U.S. Air Force, said the statement, and in 2002-3 was deputy executive secretary of the National Security Council.

The statement said Pray, originally from Clearwater, Fla., was the son of a decorated U.S. Army officer. Married with three sons, Pray now lives in Alexandria, Va.
