Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel (R) threw in the towel today by tendering his resignation to President Barack Obama, amidst all the usual pomp and circumstance at the White House (America’s equivalent to a royal divorce). His swift departure could be for a number of reasons – health, stress from having to lie to the public on a daily basis, or simply poor performance.

Did Hagel really resign, or was he actually relieved of duty by his betters? The writing was already on the wall…
