I understood Hagel was appointed to downsize the military, but with N Korea raising its ugly head I can't see the military being downsized now, so we have to wonder if Hagel could really handle a war time DOD.
    Obama intentionally surrounds himself with idiots so he will have someone to blame for his failures. Hagel is the perfect fall guy.

    Yes. He will meet or exceed the CINC's expectations. The DoD will be pale reflection of what it was 25 years ago, continuing its downward spiral since Desert Storm. Continued cuts will be made to the DoD, since all other federal agencies have been deemed "vital" to the Nation. The Department of Peace (an honest to goodness proposal) will replace the DoD on the cabinet, as the DoD becomes part of DHS.

    "The U.S. has delayed an intercontinental ballistic missile test planned for next week amid mounting tensions with North Korea, a senior defense official has said.
    The official told Associated Press that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel decided to put off the long-planned Minuteman 3 test, due to take place at an Air Force base in California, until sometime next month because of concerns the launch could be misinterpreted and exacerbate the Korean crisis.
    The test was not connected to the ongoing annual military exercises by the U.S. and South Korea in the region which have angered North Korea"
