Two days ago, in a White House briefing, the last question to the interim spokesperson (a rotating job since Carney announced his departure) was:
WHO MADE THE FINAL DECISION FOR THE EXCHANGE?
The spokesperson replied: SecDef Hagel made the final decision.
Oops..... Hagel just testified that the final decision for the exchange was made by the Commander-in-Chief. For those uninformed voters out there - THAT WOULD BE OBAMA.
I guess Hagel got tired of the whump-whump-whump-whump sounds as this administration threw him under the bus.
P.S. In case you aren't following the news of the day - Iraq is being rapidly and violently invaded by a violent Taliban splinter group.... uh oh.
