PJ Crowley forced to resign from State

For the crime of pointing out that the DoD's treatment of Bradley Manning "is ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid," PJ Crowley was forced to resign his post as State Department spokesman.

From the story, sounds like the administration had already been pushing him out the door by making White House aide Mike Hammer his deputy. Hammer was conveniently available to immediately replace Crowley.
