Head of Pentagon intelligence agency forced out, officials say
Washington Post ^ | 4/30/14 | Greg Miller and Adam Goldman,

The top two officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency said Wednesday that they will retire from those positions in the coming months, part of a leadership shake-up at an agency that is under pressure to trim budgets and shift focus after more than a decade of war, current and former U.S. officials said.

Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn is expected to end his tenure as DIA director this summer, about a year before he was scheduled to depart, according to officials who said Flynn faced pressure from Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. and others in recent months. His deputy, David Shedd, had been in his job since 2010.

Hussein keeps finding more and more REAL Americans secretly waging war against his moslem STASI ass.

I’m hoping DIA was involved in replacing Hussein’s jihadi Nuclear Launch Officers.

34 were replaced in mid JAN 2014.
Then another 34.

The cover story was ‘they cheated on a test.’

I guess they weren’t “gay” enough. Probably married to females too.

Yes, Clapper is an Obamanoid appointee of the worst kind. I don’t know these two officers, but I presume that it’s a part of Obama’s cleansing of the military of all it’s loyal, patriotic leaders.

This is not good. Clapper is an idiot and an Obama Regime ass-kisser. Hagel is, at best, only marginally better.

“Obama’s purge of the officer corps continues.”

And no high ranking official is standing up to it.

And it will continue.

And it will harm us in the long run.

Stalin redux.

Flynn was a key player in U.S. military efforts to dismantle insurgent networks in Iraq and Afghanistan, an approach that relied heavily on combining U.S. Special Operations forces with intelligence operatives and analysts.

Did it work? Our our Special Ops members doing well? We never hear about intelligence ops, how are they doing? How are they coping under the added stress that their team could be the next Extortion 17?

No matter what this administration does the result is pure evil.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel “appreciates the service of these two dedicated and professional leaders.”

Lt. Gen. Mary A. Legere, the Army’s top intelligence officer, is considered a leading candidate to replace Flynn, and she would be the first female DIA director if nominated and confirmed.

Thank Heavens those two guys don't own the Clippers.

“If you’re not doing anything wrong, you don’t have anything to worry about.”—LTG Flynn, a few months ago when speaking to my unit about the government’s numerous, invasive surveillance programs.

I’m definitely not shedding any tears over that one.

Nope. Flynn is not a friend to Joe and Jane American.
