By The Post's Ellen Nakashima:
The U.S. government is seeing "hints" that adversaries are targeting military networks for "remote" sabotage, the head of the Pentagon's recently launched Cyber Command said Tuesday in his first public remarks since being confirmed last month.
"The potential for sabotage and destruction is now possible and something we must treat seriously," said Gen. Keith Alexander, who also heads the National Security Agency, the nation's largest intelligence agency. "Our Department of Defense must be able to operate freely and defend its resources in cyberspace."
Alexander spoke before more than 300 people at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
