Hagel fired as Sec of Defense....disagreed with Obama over ISIS

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will be stepping down due to pressure from President Obama, the New York Times reported:
WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is stepping down under pressure, the first cabinet-level casualty of the collapse ofPresident Obama’s Democratic majority in the Senate and the struggles of his national security team amid an onslaught of global crises.
The president, who is expected to announce Mr. Hagel’s resignation in a Rose Garden appearance on Monday, made the decision to ask his defense secretary — the sole Republican on his national security team — to step down last Friday after a series of meetings over the past two weeks, senior administration officials said.
The president is expected to announce Sec. Hagel’s resignation on Monday in the White House Rose Garden.  Hagel, 68, is the only Republican on the president’s national security team and will be the first cabinet casualty since the GOP took back the Senate on election day.According to senior administration officials, Hagel’s removal will serve as an acknowledgement that combating ISIL is in need of a different approach.In reference to Hagel, an anonymous administration official told the New York Times:
“[T]he next couple of years will demand a different kind of focus.”
Hagel has previously been at odds with President Obama in regard to fighting ISIL, referring to them as:
“[An] imminent threat to every interest we have” and “This is beyond anything that we’ve seen.”
Many believe this is exactly why Hagel was pressured to resign (or what is called in common parlance, “fired”):
