President Barack Obama has fired the deputy commander of the Bellevue-based U.S. Strategic Command from his duties after accusations that he passed counterfeit poker chips at a Council Bluffs casino last June, Pentagon officials said Wednesday.
Vice Adm. Timothy Giardina has been reassigned to Navy staff at the Pentagon and will move to Washington, D.C., within the next three weeks, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Navy's top spokesman.
