Deputy, Fleet Cyber Command/10th Fleet Speaks to Sailors at DLIFC - Monterey, California

MONTEREY, Calif. (NNS) -- The selected deputy commander of the soon-to-be reconstituted U.S. 10th Fleet/Fleet Cyber Command, addressed more than 70 prospective Navy linguists studying at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) on Dec. 2 at the Presidio of Monterey.

Rear Adm. William E. Leigher spoke to Sailors attending DLIFLC as an "A" school for the cryptologic technician (interpretive) rating, about the role of the Navy's newest numbered fleet and the effects it will have on future fleet operations and the Navy's cryptologic community.

"I have watched cryptology evolve over the last 20 years from a very tight and small field to a community that will lead what the Navy does in the Information Age. We are going to be much more involved in defining the operations that we take part in."

I would love to hear your comments on the clear leadership shortcomings of "security by obscurity" over at ID (

If what is written is true, IO is vulnerable as the enemy short circuits the leadership's OODA loop. Do you think this is really a problem of the leadership's inability to innovate and adapt in an inherently innovative field?
