Cheney names Libby's replacements
White House resists call for further changes in administration

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney named two of his top staffer members Monday to replace I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who resigned last week after being indicted in the CIA leak investigation.

The White House, meanwhile, resisted calls for further staff changes in the administration.

...Cheney picked David Addington to serve as his chief of staff and John Hannah to take over Libby's duties as assistant to the vice president for national security affairs.

Addington, who had been Cheney's general counsel, was the author of the so-called "torture memo" of January 2002. The memo, signed by then-White House counsel Alberto Gonzales -- now the U.S. attorney general -- claimed the Geneva Conventions on torture did not apply in the "war on terrorism."

Before becoming Cheney's counsel, Addington served at the CIA, the Defense Department, the White House and four congressional committees.

Hannah has served on Cheney's national security staff since March 2001 and has been principal deputy assistant for national security affairs. Before joining Cheney's staff, he worked in the State Department.
