New Defense Chief Seeks New Spokesman

“Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary since December 2013, has been asked to step down from his role as the public face of the Pentagon by new Defense Secretary Ash Carter,” Defense News reports.  

“Carter plans to bring in his own civilian spokesman, as he prefers having a civilian rather than a uniformed member of the military promoting policy decisions from the podium at the Pentagon.”
