Default Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel resigns

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has resigned under pressure amid criticism of the president’s national security team on a series of global issues, including the threat posed by the militant group known as ISIS.

During a statement at the White House, President Barack Obama called Hagel "an exemplary Defense Secretary" and "a great friend of mine" who helped steer the military amid a time of great transition at the Pentagon.

Hagel called serving in the post "the greatest privilege of my life."

But behind the scenes, the departure appeared to be less rosy. Senior defense officials told NBC News Monday that Hagel was forced to resign. Those officials said the White House lost confidence in the former Nebraska senator to carry out his role at the Pentagon.

According to one senior official, “He wasn’t up to the job.”

From what I have been hearing is that Hagel was never involved in Obama's round table of daily sessions..basically left out of the loop as they say. He plans to stick around until a replacement can be found..like who??
