The domino effect in action.
Or is it rats bailing off of a sinking ship.

(CNN)-WASHINGTON (AP) -- Stephen A. Cambone, the Pentagon's top intelligence official and a close ally of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, will step down at the end of the year, becoming the first key department member to leave in the wake of Rumsfeld's resignation.

It had been widely speculated that Cambone, the undersecretary of defense for intelligence, would resign as the Pentagon prepares for the expected Senate confirmation of a new defense chief -- former CIA Director Robert Gates.

The Pentagon's intelligence-gathering has come under fire during Cambone's tenure, with critics accusing the Defense Department of trying to take expanded control over the nation's intelligence activities.

Well... he was a close associate of Rumsfeld

Rumsfeld was fired

I think that lasting until the end of the year is pretty good for him. It was pretty sure a few high ranking officials would follow no?

Since it was deemed Rumsfeld wasn't the man of the situation anymore it is simply logical to replace his personnel with different oriented people.

otherwise, how would you hope to see some change in the leadership?

do we want to see a change in leadership? The current ones are incompatent enough as it is.
