Frances Fragos Townsend, President Bush’s domestic security advisor, announced Monday that she was resigning — the latest in a series of senior officials to leave the administration as the president juggles a still-full agenda.

Townsend, who began working for the government as an assistant U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, N.Y., rose over two decades and the administrations of four presidents to become a fixture in the Oval Office and on Sunday talk shows — delivering confidential reports to the president and security warnings to the public as the domestic security threat evolved.
