Mr McDonough has played a key role in all of the major national security decisions of his presidency, including the end of the war in Iraq, winding down the war in Afghanistan and responses to natural disasters in Haiti and Japan.

He replaces Jack Lew, who has been nominated as Treasury Secretary.

Mr McDonough (43) is from an Irish-American family and has many relatives here.
