WASHINGTON (AFP) — Barack Obama has vowed to observe Geneva Conventions bans on torture and outlawed the tweaking of intelligence data for political gain, naming new US spy chiefs in a clean break from the Bush years.

Completing the top ranks of his national security team, the president-elect named retired admiral Dennis Blair as director of national intelligence and veteran Washington player Leon Panetta to head the Central Intelligence Agency.

“We know that to be truly secure, we must adhere to our values as vigilantly as we protect our safety — with no exceptions,” Obama said Friday, 12 days before he is sworn in as president.
