US may split Cyber Command and NSA — RT USA
The 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.
Dans les perspectives d’évolution, la Maison-Blanche envisagerait la séparation des fonctions de directeur de la NSA (agence civile) et de directeur du Cyber Command (militaire), fonctions actuellement occupées par le Général Keith Alexander.

Adding to the AP, [a spokesperson] admitted that the White House is “ in consultation with appropriate agencies ” and “l ooking to ensure we are appropriately postured to address current and future security needs. "
“ Obviously we’re aware that some have proposed splitting the NSA and Cyber Command position, ” added [another spokesperson] reached for comment by the Washington Post.
L’actuel titulaire n’en pense, évidemment, pas beaucoup de bien. Il l’a dit à deux reprises (au moins)
[ at an event hosted by Politico in October] “ If you try to break them up, what you have is two teams not working together. ”
“ Our nation can’t afford, especially in this budget environment, to have one team try to rebuild what the other team does, ” Alexander said at the October event.
That same month, he told the Washington Post that “ You create more problems by trying to separate them and have two people fighting over who’s in charge than putting it all together. ”
Russia Today, quant à elle, n’est pas vraiment convaincue par les prestations du général dans ses fonctions…
As the recent revelations attributed to #NSA #contractor-turned-leaker Edward #Snowden have proved, however, the conduct of the nation’s highly secretive intelligence agency has escaped arguably much-needed scrutiny and oversight while being manned by Alexander during the last eight years.
