Army Maj. Gen. Michael Flynn will be leaving his post in Afghanistan to take a new job in Washington, D.C., according to Army spokesman Col. Thomas Collins.

During his tenure in Afghanistan, Flynn leaves a legacy of comprehensive intelligence, gathering economic and social data as well as tracking physical movements of the Taliban.

Although Flynn’s new post has not been confirmed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, sources suggested he would be working for James Clapper, the new director of national intelligence, or was being considered for assistant director of national intelligence for partner engagement.

Brig. Gen. Stephen Fogarty, currently intelligence chief of U.S. Central Command, is expected to take Flynn’s post in Afghanistan. Fogarty has worked with current Afghan Commander Gen. David Petraeus as commander of the Joint Information Operation Center. The center focuses on remote surveillance and operates drones to track the movements of insurgents.
