The Barack Obama administration is being silly and disingenuous. Of course, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was fired. The Administration is pretending it is something else saying 'he is resigning." Yeah...resigning after the President asked him (and if he didn't?) That is called getting fired. And why do I think he got fired? Because the President called ISIS jayvee in the New Yorker while his Secretary of Defense said "ISIS is an imminent threat to every interest we have...this is beyond anything we've seen." In other words, he made President Obama look bad, real bad...so...Hagel got the target on his back. (by the way, the pic is a cropped pic from NYT)
