But he has distinguished himself.
Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel is recommending shrinking the Army to its smallest size since the buildup to U.S. involvement in World War II in an effort to balance postwar defense needs with budget realities.
Hagel announced that and other recommendations Monday in a speech at the Pentagon outlining his priorities for next year’s defense budget. He also recommended billions of dollars in cuts that would reduce housing allowances and other benefits, a move that is sure to be controversial when he brings his budget before Congress next week.
Army leaders have been saying for months that they expect their size would shrink as the nation prepares to end its combat role in Afghanistan this year. Hagel said that this budget is the first “to fully reflect the transition [the Department of Defense] is making after 13 years of war.” [More]
True, radical Islam first declared war on the U.S. way back in 1979, and no radical Islamist sect has yet given any indication that they are about to give up trying to destroy the Great Satan, but when Barack Obama says a war is over it is over. Fini. Sluttede. Hasta La Over.
For the last half decade Barack Obama has reinvented rhetoric politics: He has replaced the good old-fashioned lie with terms like “struggles with messaging” and “I could have better calibrated my words.”
But with Chuck Hagel’s appointment as Secretary of Defense Barack has reaffirmed that “dumb as a box of hammers” still means “dumb as a box of hammers.”
