1. Political show. Obama wants the smart people at the Washington Post to love his

foreign policy again, so now they'll start applauding him for being newly "tough" on defense with Flournoy or Carter at the helm. (Even though Hagel wasn't in charge of foreign policy, of course).

3. He wanted out

He was there to build a new military, not run a war. Obama is headed towards alot more war.
