Faster than “Lightspeed”

Gen. Michael Moseley wants 8th Air Force chief Lt. Gen. Robert Elder to “push it up, go faster” on laying groundwork to create a new major command for cyber warfare. The Chief of Staff specifically wants to know how many people it would take to do the job properly. Elder owes Moseley an answer at the June Corona meeting. Moseley said he thinks such a command is inevitability and sees no obvious reason why it couldn’t be based at Barksdale AFB, La., which is 8th Air Force’s home base. But “nothing is ever that easy,” said Moseley, acknowledging that there would have to be reviews and environmental impact studies done before such a move could go forward.
