State Department Leadership Vacancies

While the chattering classes gasp and wheeze, I view this as a positive development:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s job running the State Department just got considerably more difficult. The entire senior level of management officials resigned Wednesday, part of an ongoing mass exodus of senior Foreign Service officers who don’t want to stick around for the Trump era.

Nope, probably makes his job easier. Cleans out the upper strata, opens up opportunities for promotions, etc.

By the way, I think the better word is “retire,” not “resign.” They won’t be starving, and shivering in cardboard boxes.

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.

    Given the current resume’ trend, any replacement for Kennedy will be an upgrade. Just the perception of accountability will improve State’s management. Of the lot, Gentry Smith is a nice guy, and Greg Starr knew his job, but there is a large mass of hacks at GS-14 and -15 who are simply awful.

    Secretary Tillerson needs to scrape off the top layer of leftist suckasses until they draw blood. It is the only way to remove a wart.
