We never hear from the leadership


Oh, how many times I have heard that tired refrain - "We never hear from the leadership."  Well, here you go.  Here is the leadership.  He is speaking to YOU.  Nearly a full hour of unscripted, unedited, unabridged and understandable "leader speak" from the senior leader of the Information Warfare/Cryptologic community.  Spend an hour with VADM Michael S. Rogers, Commander U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/TENTH Fleet as he discusses the challenges of protecting the cyber components of U.S. Naval assets, offensive and defensive cyber-capabilities, and much more, in this fascinating lunch hour talk at the Stockdale Center's 2012 McCain Conference, "Warfare in a New Domain: The Ethics of Military Cyber Operations".  The full video is HERE.

IWOs who would like a DVD of this session, send me an e-mail and I will shoot one out to you.  Only the first 840 IWOs who respond will be eligible for this free offer ;-)   While supplies last.  The usual legal disclaimers apply.

Thanks Mike. Really appreciate you posting this. Wish FCC or 10 Fleet had passed this along to us. Would prefer to hear from official sources but I will take the info any way I can get it.

Thanks. I got the oppportunity to hear the Admiral speak for the first time recently at the NIOC Pensacola change-of-command. The Admiral is an eloquent speaker with a great message (or multiple messages), and it appeared he used no notes in his delivery. Got to meet him after the event and he is truly and officer and a gentleman.

Good comment, NIOC CO.

NIOC CO, Just curious as to how it coming from "official sources" would enhance the message and through what means would it need to travel for it to be considered more "official"? Not poking, genuinely interested.

To ANON 10:03 PM ... I'm not NIOC CO but I think I share some sentiment ... The sense of a 161X community has substantially wained over the past several years with very little unifying communication from above outlining the way ahead in these volatile times. Notionally this void was to be filled by the coming together of the IDC and a larger identity. This too hasn't materialized. VADM R's comments are good and helpful but shouldn't I hear them at a CDRs conference or via a wardroom communiqué of some sort.

CAPT Lambert, you state that “…He’s speaking to you…” – that’s not true. He’s speaking to an external conference and very few of us would have heard these words except for your watchful eye and penchant for sharing.

Just chill and view the video. Who cares where it came from or how you got to see it? Or, who he's talking to?
