CBS News has hired the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard Myers, to serve as its senior military security analyst, effective immediately.

Myers served as Chairman of the JCS beginning in 2001 (weeks after 9/11), retiring in 2005. He now serves as foundation professor of military history and leadership at Kansas State University, as well as the Colin Powell Chair for National Security Leadership, Character and Ethics at National Defense University.

CBS News has been snatching up a number of high-profile experts to serve as contributors. Among them: Captain Chesley Sullenberger, who talks about aviation issues, M. Sanjayan to talk about science and the environment, and Lee Woodruff.
