US May Split Cyber Command And NSA – 9 November 2013

RT logoThe White House is reportedly considering a structural change that would task two separate officials with overseeing the United States National Security Agency and the US Cyber Command when the man currently in charge of both operations retires next year.

Gen. Keith Alexander has been the top ranking NSA official since he was appointed director of the controversial intelligence agency in 2005, and five years later he landed the job of heading the newly-created USCYBERCOM upon the Defense Department’s decision to launch a unit in charge of the military’s offensive and defensive hacking campaigns.

Brendan Sasso of Washington’s The Hill website first reported allegations of restructuring on Wednesday this week, quoting an unnamed “former high-ranking administration official familiar with internal discussions” who said the issue was being floated in DC. On Friday, the Associated Press elaborated on the report further and has since added credence to claims that two of the most critical roles within the Department of Defense could be divvied up.
