AP: Leon Panetta Will Be Nominated for Secretary of Defense

Leon Panetta? The former Clinton Chief of Staff and current Director of Intelligence who told Congress that his prediction that Hosni Mubarak would step down was based on media reports? That Leon Panetta? Call me crazy, but a good Intelligence Director shouldn’t have to read the New York Times.

In any case, that’s the same guy who’s probably going to be the next Secretary of Defense.

USA Today:

CIA director Leon Panetta will be named to succeed Robert Gates as secretary of defense and Gen. David Petraeus will be nominated to replace him as CIA director, The Associated Press reports, quoting unidentified sources.

CNN has the headline of the day so far:


How’s Leon supposed to train for his new position as SecDef if he can’t sign in to play Call of Duty?
