McCain demands answers on deadly Niger attack

McCain demands answers on deadly Niger attack”

Most of the Armed Services committee did not like what they heard.

Rapuano said the combined work of the departments has increased authorities' understanding of new cyber threats facing the country, but he acknowledged "we continue to face challenges when it comes to cyber-incident response on a large scale". "In theory, that is the White House Cyber Coordinator's job, but that non-confirmable position lacks the full authority to make cyber policy and strategy and direct our government's efforts", McCain said".

The top cyber officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Defense and Homeland Security testified Thursday but the main witness did not show up.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., said Thursday that getting information on the attack in Niger that killed four American soldiers "may require a subpoena".

"I would also like to note at the outset the empty chair at the witness table", McCain said during opening remarks.

Smith, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said while the agency has numerous resources aimed specifically at combating cybercrime, it also has several other divisions "the Federal Bureau of Investigation can leverage at a cyber incident".

"The scale, scope, and complexity of today's threats in the digital domain is unlike anything humanity has ever experienced", said Scott Smith, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"If you can change the outcome of an election, then what is the constitution and our way of life all about?" said McCain.

McCain and others urged the agencies to develop a comprehensive plan before Russian Federation strikes again.
