Panetta exits Pentagon

There’s going to be a new Secretary of Defense today. And the outgoing SECDEF Leon Panetta said in a farewell message, “It’s been the privilege of my life to serve with and lead the men and women of this Department.” And in his final act he expressed deep gratitude to those who are fighting and working every day in national defense. The U.S. Senate voted to confirm Chuck Hagel on Tuesday as President Barack Obama’s new secretary of defense.
