Fascinating. An entire department's (USA State Department...basically, the USA's foreign policy advisory) worth of senior management just resigned. It would stand to reason that resigned is code for "was about to get fired".

This, to my memory, is the largest mass resignation in an international portfolio. Note that this aren't politicians but lifelong professionals. Most served under multiple administrations (30-40 years or so) and there are virtually no private industry replacement options.

Tillerson's job just got a lot harder.
