Gen. John Hyten: Stratcom, SOCOM Depend on Intelligence, Data

John Hyten

Gen. John Hyten, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, has said Stratcom and Special Operations Command are both warfighting commands that rely on intelligence and information, DVIDS reported Monday.

“If we don’t have intelligence information, all the capabilities [both commands have] are pretty much useless,” he said Monday at the 2018 Department of Defense Intelligence Information System Worldwide Conference.

Hyten, two-time Wash100 awardee, cited how technological developments and hostile threats have changed the way Stratcom looks at deterrence and warfighting and discussed the need for a flexible force.

“Success in the future is going to be when we apply capabilities through whatever domain we have to, through whatever means we have to, and we don’t care where it comes from or where it goes to as long as it dominates the adversary,” he added.
