CNN - Politics: Reports on a secret memo sent by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to the Oval Office, the memo concerned Syria, " It was a detailed analysis, crafted directly by Hagel "expressing concern about overall Syria strategy," a senior U.S. official tells CNN....It comes at a time when the Pentagon is well aware there is growing, but anonymous chatter, that some White House officials are unhappy with Hagel's performance. "
Lets Get Real:
Thus another Secretary of Defence is protecting his backside when it comes to Syria, the Oval will have to face the fact that the War in Syria and Iraq is not going well, the air strategy alone only works in the mind of President Obama. Thus if you judge a President by his actions, one has to say President Obama has been a failure when it comes to Syria, his disaster of the red lines speech started the process, when Obama said that if the Assad Regime used WMD it would be a red line, then did nothing when Assad used WMD gave the impression that the Oval and the US was weak. The decision to remove ALL US troops from Iraq will be seen as a equal disaster, the removal allowed IS to take over vast areas of Iraq and become a threat to the Capital, Baghdad. The fact that the Hagel memo leaked shows that Hagel does not want to be blamed for Syria or Iraq, loyalty costs in Washington D.C.
