Hagel was asked to leave.(updated with link that I forgot earlier)
Why is that high-larious?
He raised the ire of the White House in August as the administration was ramping up its strategy to fight the Islamic State, directly contradicting the president, who months before had likened the Sunni militant group to a junior varsity basketball squad. Mr. Hagel, facing reporters in his now-familiar role next to General Dempsey, called the Islamic State an “imminent threat to every interest we have,” adding, “This is beyond anything that we’ve seen.”
He was fired for being competent.
Think of that. Chuck, “Nobody will take my calls” Hagel is one of the few people in the world who can make J Effin Kerry look not a total idiot, who can make Biden look like a foreign policy genius and he was fired for competence.
C’mon. That’s darn funny.
