  •  Again, that may be true but what does that have (0+ / 0-)

    to do with this case. What has she done that actually requires disciplining? I don't believe the DEA should exist at all but I just don't see how the President can fire Leonhart for doing her job. If she has become a political liability he should simply ask for her resignation but he shouldn't fire her. It would create a completely unnecessary political disaster for the Administration.

    I think the President should at least reform the DEA's mission or disband it altogether. If that is done then it would not really matter who is or was in charge. The real problem is that the DEA has way too much power. If we don't fix that issue all the rest really don't matter?

    Really don't mind if you sit this one out. My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. I may make you feel but I can't make you think..Jethro Tull
