NEW YORK — The former director of the CIA has been named a fellow at the Fordham University School of Law’s Center on National Security.

John Brennan, who led the agency from 2013 until January of this year, took the new position Tuesday. The New York Times reports (http://nyti.ms/2gJbUAv ) he has been named a distinguished fellow for global security and will participate in the Center on National Security’s programs.
