  •  Panetta IS incompetent and should be fired (0+ / 0-)

    Here's what Lindsey Graham said Panetta had to say just a few days ago in an urgent phone call.

    “I was called by Leon Panetta last night at 7:30, during dinner. … And he said, Lindsey, I have been told that there's going to be nothing in this bill to avoid sequestration going into effect,” Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.”

    “He says if we do this, it will be shooting the Defense Department in the head and we'll have to send out 800,000 layoff notices the beginning of the year,” Graham said. “He is worried to death that if we don't fix the sequestration, we're going to destroy the finest military in the world at a time we need it the most. And this bill doesn't cover defense cuts, on top of the ones we've already have.”

      You have to have planned to know how many layoff slips are needed and where they are. Knowing what you have to do and what you want to do, and the difference is part of being both an administrator and a pol.
