State Department's top cyber official to leave post

The State Department’s top cyber official will leave his position at the end of this month. 

Chris Painter, appointed the department’s coordinator for cyber issues in 2011 during the Obama administration, will leave the State Department at the end of July.


Ok, this was yesterday's news, but somehow I must of missed it on DU.

I saw that they were also leaving the war crimes division abandoned. But this?? Why this?? With everything going on right now, why this? Obvious, in your face, blatant, they can do whatever they want, the red flags are up...What the hell is going on??
