Detained Libby is replaced by Addington

Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday appointed his counsel, David Addington, as chief of staff to replace Lewis Libby, who was indicted in the CIA leak investigation, the vice president's office announced.

Cheney also appointed John Hannah, who had served on his national security staff since March 2001, as assistant to the vice president for national security affairs. Libby had held both positions.

Addington has served as counsel to the vice president since January 20, 2001.

The appointments came after Libby was indicted on Friday on charges of obstructing justice, perjury and making false statements. He resigned and left the White House, Reuters reports.
