Welcome news. Of all the Executive Branch agencies, the State Department is probably the one most in need of a serious change.
Tillerson is shaking up the staff at Foggy Bottom. The NY Post’s Daniel Halper calls it a “bloodbath.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.
Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.
Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.
This and some earlier firings/resignations last month are setting a new tone. CBS reports that during the recent visit from Israeli PM Netanyahu, there were no officials from the State Department involved in any of the meetings.
More agencies need to get in line and follow Rex Tillerson’s play book. CLEAN HOUSE!
