US President Barack Obama on Monday will nominate White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan as CIA director, an administration official said. 

''Brennan has the full trust and confidence of the president,'' the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP. ``Over the past four years, he has been involved in virtually all major national security issues and will be able to hit the ground running at CIA.''

His impending nomination comes to light as Obama puts in place a revamped foreign policy and security team, after announcing last month that he has chosen US Senator John Kerry to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.
