On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” network senior political analyst Brit Hume reacted to the news Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has tendered his resignation to President Barack Obama.
According to Hume, it says a lot about the relationship between the Obama administration and the Pentagon.
“I think it tells you a lot about or suggest a lot about the inner workings of the Obama administration and its attitude toward military – that he has now had three defense secretaries, two of them Republicans, but Leon Panetta was a Democrat going way back — all of whom came out with significant disagreements with the president on his various policies and actions. And I think the president is probably on the lookout now for somebody more agreeable to what he wants to do. Martha, I think it’s entirely conceivable, I suppose, the president is feeling we need somebody to lead a stronger effort against ISIS but nothing that the president has done or said suggest that to me anyway.”
