Former Pentagon attorney Jeh Johnson nominated as next secretary of DHS

schwit1 (797399) writes "Upside:
During a speech at Britain's Oxford University last year, Johnson said that the nation's war on terrorism should not be endless, and the focus should shift to law enforcement and intelligence operations. "War must be regarded as a finite, extraordinary and unnatural state of affairs," Johnson said. "In its 12th year, we must not accept the current conflict, and all that it entails, as the new normal."

Downside:
He is another political insider who has no track record of successfully managing a large department let alone one as big, unpopular and dysfunctional as the DHS."
