• Why Did Obama Really Dump Hagel? Bo Dietl Knows

    Former NYPD detective Bo Dietl has at least one theory about why Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was given the old heave-ho by President Obama this morning.

    Put simply, Hagel was the fall-guy for Obama’s gross miscalculation on ISIS.

    Of course, the president can’t just come out and blame Chuck for all of it, since Obama himself was out there publicly referring to the terror organization as a “jayvee” team. But he can certainly try and imply that it was Hagel’s fault for feeding him that narrative.

    Dietl says Obama prefers to only have “yes people” working for him, and rather than admit that he was wrong about the rise of ISIS — as well as the need for ground forces — it’s simply easier to oust Hagel.

    Names for possible Hagel replacements being floated about in the media include Jack Reed and Michelle Flournoy. But if Obama is truly looking for “yes people” only, he might as well just promote Susan Rice to the post, no?
