Defense Department's Top Lawyer Resigns

Defense Department General Counsel Jeh Johnson plans to resign as the Pentagon's top lawyer at the end of the year, the Post's Emily Heil reported Thursday. Johnson, who said in a letter to President Obama that he will finish out the year and return to private law practice, helped the Obama administration deal with a host of controversial issues, including the growing use of drones, the prison at Guantanamo Bay, and a task force that studies the potential impact of repealing the military's now-repealed Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.
