Key Officials Advocate Nsa, Cyber Command Leadership Be Split Up

Some current and former officials say that the NSA and Cyber Command have fundamentally different missions spying and conducting military attacks and that each deserves its own leader. Earlier this month, a spokesman for Clapper, Shawn Turner, told The Washington Post that Clapper thought that there are a number of potential benefits to having separate leaders at NSA and Cyber Command and that its important to take a thorough look at the possibility of separating the positions. Supporters of the current structure chief among them Alexander say that the current arrangement makes sense given that Cyber Command and the NSA operate on the same networks and that Cyber Command is highly dependent on the NSAs ability to gain access to adversaries computer systems for intelligence and to conduct potential operations. The two entities operations centers sit side by side at Fort Meade, with personnel moving freely between the two. Whatever the outcome, said a senior administration official, the key is to ensure that the interdependencies between Cyber Command and NSA can be preserved. Said the official: You wouldnt want Cyber Command and NSA dueling for resources. Jeremy Bash, a former chief of staff to the secretary of defense and to the CIA director, agrees that the current arrangement should be preserved to avoid duplication of effort. But, he said, if the decision is made to split the leadership, whether a military or civilian official leads the NSA is immaterial. We should have the best person for the job regardless of whether online they wear a uniform or not, said Bash, who is managing director of Beacon Global Strategies, a national security consulting firm. Inglis, who is a former Air Force pilot and began his NSA career as a computer scientist, would be terrific as NSA director, Bash said. Since last year, the name most often mentioned to succeed Alexander at Cyber Command has been Vice Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the head of the Navys Fleet Cyber Command. Serving more than 30 years in the Navy, Rogers has worked in cryptology and signals intelligence and has been the top intelligence officer for both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and U.S. Pacific Command. Whether to split the roles and whether to install a civilian NSA head are two separate but related questions. The jobs could be separated but a military officer such as Rogers kept in charge.
