The Senate Armed Services Committee has given its blessing and passed the nomination of Admiral Cecil Haney on to the full Senate.
Senator Fischer…a member of the committee…voted Haney. . .
Haney left StratCom three years ago to become the Navy’s Pacific Fleet Commander. If approved by the full Senate, Haney will succeed Air Force General C. Robert Kehler [KAY ler] who has been the StratCom commander since the beginning of 2011.
