Pentagon spokesman John Kirby moves to White House

Pentagon press secretary John Kirby joins the White House, according to a person familiar with the matter, and adds star power to President Joe Biden’s National Security Council. Kirby, who was also the top spokesperson for the Pentagon and the State Department during the Obama administration, is expected to handle strategic communications for the NSC as the West Wing navigates a range of foreign policy challenges, from the Russian invasion of Ukraine to North Korea’s nuclear program. Kirby has been a fixture on cable news, especially during the crisis in Ukraine, and is valued by the government for handling even the thorniest foreign policy questions with ease.
