    Chuck Hagel resigning – fall guy for failed Obama policies

    Chuck Hagel resigning – fall guy for failed Obama policies

    Too many tire tracks on his back.

    It’s not like this was unexpected. Chuck Hagel long has become the fall guy for Obama administration international failures, as we first noted in connection with the Taliban-Bergdahl swap, Taliban-Bergdahl swap unpopular, so … blame Hagel.

    The lone Republican in the cabinet, Hagel was supposed to lend credibility to Obama’s downsizing of the military and retreat from international engagement. Hagel recently announced a realignment and refocus of the military, including some expanded capabilities.

    Now Hagel is resigning under pressure, according to numerous media reports.

    Via NBC News:

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down 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.

    Senior defense officials confirmed to NBC News Monday that Hagel was forced to resign.

    The officials say the White House has lost confidence in Hagel to carry out his role at the Pentagon. According to one senior official, “He wasn’t up to the job.”

    Another senior administration official said that Hagel has been discussing a departure from the White House “for several weeks.”

    More to follow.
