Richard Haass Stepping Down as President of CFR

After nearly 20 years at the helm of one of the most influential foreign policy think tanks, Richard Haass has decided to leave his post as president of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

The New York Times broke the news this week.  Among other things, NYT notes that President Biden's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, once interned for Mr. Haass's predecessor at the think tank, Leslie Gelb.

Some have already speculated that Sullivan could be in the running to be the next CFR president.

Haass, whose annually salary tops $1.7 million, is expected to depart in June and no replacement has yet been named.
