Martin Stallone, Don’t Forget The Cyber! (May 4, 2009) (full-text).
This paper finds U.S. Strategic Command's USSTRATCOM monopoly over planning and execution of cyberspace operations, as well as the structure and composition of the geographic command that must integrate cyberspace operations at the operational level, suboptimal to creative operational design and integrated force employment. As a remedy, this paper asserts an empowered Joint Force Cyber Component Commander (JFCyCC) within each geographic combatant command will improve the integration of operations in cyberspace with operations in other domains and across the range of military operations. A JFCyCC will enhance the Joint Force Commander's (JFC) freedom of action and military advantage by widening the canvass on which he can creatively paint his forces.
