Phillip E. Coyle III to serve as new Associate Director for International Affairs within OSTP
Jul 26, 2010
Last week President Obama announced the recess appointment of Phillip E. Coyle, III to serve as the new Associate Director for National Security and International Affairs within the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). Coyle most recently served as a Senior Advisor to the President of the World Security Institute. Obama nominated Coyle in November 2009, but an anonymous hold was placed on his appointment by one or more Senators who objected to Coyle's stance on national missile defense systems.
