NSA Tactics Needed by U.S. Military

USA Today reports that “even if a recommendation by the White House panel on electronic surveillance to have separate directors for the National Security Agency and the military’s Cyber Command is approved, the two agencies must still work closely together, intelligence analysts said Wednesday.”

“Currently both organizations are under an Army general, Keith Alexander, and are located together at Fort Meade, Md. In military parlance, Alexander is ‘dual-hatted.'”

“The two have separate missions, but the capabilities they need to do their jobs are similar. ‘Neither one can be successful without the other,’ said Dickie George, a former NSA official.”
