Blair let the cat out of the bag about the authorization to assassinate Americans abroad in the WOT. Obama I’m sure isn’t please about being painted into that corner.

I believe the problem is he’s not towing the ideological line. He has probably urged Obambi to do something other than “strongly condemn” North Korea. He probably said the rules of engagement in the Persian gulf need to change so a Captain or Admiral has the right to say when we shoot down provocative aircraft. He might have mentioned that not supporting South Korea will lead to a nuclear arms race. He may have mentioned that failure to support our allies is unconscionable. He might also have let slip that Obambi is the laughing stock of the Islamic world. Yep, he had to go all right.

I think their steamy love affair ended around the time Wright started to suspect Obama’s people “retired” the Choir Director Donald Young.

I agree with you. Disagreement over North Korea's attack is probably the straw which broke the camel's back here.

If he can stay alive for a few months, he'll write a hell of a tell-all book. I'd like to see it published in the spring of 2012.

I never thought Blair would last very long in the Obama Regime due to the very reasons you stated. The alien president was just waiting for the right time get rid of him.

Probably. It has to be an "American" who is interested in our security and the security of our allies.

Bingo. Ozero did not like that coming out while he is trying to make nice with his leftist pals in the dem party. Some are really upset about the continued drone attacks.

Of course, since Ozero never answers to the free press no one will hear him answer a question on the subject and my sense tells me that anyone with the DNI title probably has the concept of keeping his mouth shut (lest he meet an untimely end in Fort Marcy Park)

This does not sound to me like Ubama asked for his resignation. This sounds to me like Ubama's political people want it to LOOK LIKE Ubama asked for his resignation.

I think the guy got fed up and quit.

no question that Blair got marginalized. I'm guessing that it probably was mutual. FWIW..Judith Miller (if you trust her ) from Fox is reporting that Obama asked for Blair's resignation.

Yep, somebody who is already on the same page. As soon as he picks someone we research the heck out of them, save all files to hard drive and forward to Glenn Beck. With a little work and luck maybe we can get him/her s#*t-canned in under a week. ;-)

The Obamanation is reportedly leaning toward appointing either Bill Ayers or Bernadine Dohrn as the next DNI.

According to unnamed sources close to the White House, Ayers would be favored by some, but others in the WH believe that Dohrn could squeak through to the nomination ahead of her husband.

no other candidates are being considered.

I basically do trust Judith Miller. Nevertheless, I would bet that this parting is mutual. "I quit." "You're fired."
