After months touting its intention to be the front line for defending cyberspace, the Air Force has suspended plans to establish its much hyped Cyber Command program, according to Nextgov.
The program is being halted until new senior Air Force leaders have time to review it and determine a focus and direction.
Speaking as a former member of the Air Force I bet this is completely political. Some new General wanted to get credit for the new Cyber command so they stop all the old Generals plans dead in the water. I saw this kind of stuff all the time. Policies would get reversed or drastically changed as soon as you got a brand new General appointed.
