David Petraeus, the recently retired Army general who served as top commander in both Afghanistan and Iraq, was sworn in Tuesday as director of the CIA.

Petraeus becomes the 20th director in agency history, taking over for Leon Panetta, who left the CIA in June to become defense secretary.

After being sworn in by Vice President Joe Biden, Petraeus addressed the CIA’s workforce at the agency’s headquarters in Langley, Va.

“I respect the intellectual firepower as well as the courage, initiative, and selfless commitment that are the hallmarks of this organization,” Petraeus said. “And I truly feel very privileged to be part of such a legendary institution.”
