“U.S. Cyber Command not ready for prime time
Command misses self-imposed Oct. 1 deadline for full operational capacity
By Amber CorrinOct 01, 2010
The new U.S. Cyber Command failed to meet an Oct. 1 deadline for full operational capability, but is continuing to work toward that goal, according to Defense Department officials.
In an October 2009 memorandum, Defense Secretary Robert Gates predicted that the command "will reach...full operational capability no later than October 2010," and today had been the target date set for becoming fully operational in many discussions by DOD.
But as the deadline passed, there have been no announcements from the command such as those that came when it was officially established and reached initial operating capacity in May -- a date much later than the previously projected October 2009.
That delay was widely blamed on lengthy congressional hearings that focused on the command's commander, Lt. Gen. Keith Alexander, and a backlog on Capitol Hill that pushed back Alexander's hearings. The previous delay in Alexander's Senate confirmation hearing appears to have bled into the command's timeline for reaching full operational capability.”
