The former Republican who blatantly accepted Obama's offer to be cabinet member is resigning from his post
Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down after criticism of the campaigns in Afghanistan and against the Islamic State. [...]
Mr Hagel served as senator from Nebraska and became a critic of US involvement in Iraq. He received two Purple Hearts for his service in the Vietnam War.
Sky News US correspondent Dominic Waghorn said: "He has had outstanding differences with the close-knit team of advisors around the President, he's never quite managed to break into that.
"And over the last few weeks and months there have been real points of disagreement between him and other officials in the Pentagon … on the issue of ISIS, on the issue of what to do in Syria in particular."
What disagreements, we can only wonder? He was against bringing down Saddam at the time of the Bush administration, so why he'd disagree with liberals whose policies are more to his liking is weird. He won't be missed as a defense secretary.
