The Obama administration is nominating Michael Rogers, head of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command, as the new head of the National Security Agency (NSA) and U.S. Command at a moment when U.S. surveillance practices are under intense scrutiny.

 

"This is a critical time for the NSA, and Vice Admiral Rogers would bring extraordinary and unique qualifications to this position as the agency continues its vital mission and implements President Obama's reforms," Hagel, who is currently visiting Poland, said in a statement.

If confirmed, Rogers would replace current director Keith Alexander. Rogers was also nominated as chief of the Central Security Service, the statement said.
