The CIA has been operating without an inspector general for over a year, and the Senators are growing concerned. An inspector general is an internal watchdog position, in charge of investigating fraud, corruption, and other internal affairs. For the CIA, this position is especially noteworthy because the agency operates under secrecy.
At least two Senators have called on Obama to appoint someone to the position immediately. The concerns have grown, in part, because of the recent failed/foiled terrorist attacks here in the US. The White House has said that a nominee will be announced soon.
