"Brazilian Defense Minister Nelson Jobim resigned late Thursday after a newspaper said he had criticized two Cabinet colleagues, becoming the third Cabinet member to quit since the administration took office Jan. 1. Communications Minister Helena Chagas said Jobim submitted his resignation to President Dilma Rousseff and would be replaced by former Foreign Minister Celso Amorim." (08/04/11)
