Pentagon Head Quits Suddenly

( Heidi Grant, the director of the United States Defense Secretary Cooperation Agency, is expected to leave her role overseeing foreign arms sales at the U.S. Pentagon on November 6. She will be moving on to a new job at Boeing, where she will be responsible for managing defense, space, and government services sales teams.

She is expected to start in her new role at Boeing on November 8, just two days after her official leaving date.

A press release from Boeing announced that Grant had been selected to lead the department, serving as the Vice President of Business Developing, and leading an organization within the company that was previously referred to as Global Sales and Marketing.

Just a quick thought on this…is it right that somebody with inside knowledge on the sale of weapons between the United States and foreign nations should be able to take that information with her to a private company?

Grant was the first civilian in her role in the Pentagon, assuming the position in August of last year. At the time, she reportedly told people that it was her “dream job.”

So why is she leaving?

Is President Joe Biden forcing her out?

She started her career in the United States Department of Defense back in 1989 and has since then held a number of major roles within the Air Force, Navy, and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

That’s one less very qualified person out of a major federal position.
