Forced Out: Obama Announces Hagel's Resignation

President Barack Obama announced Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel's resignation at the White House Monday morning. Obama called Hagel "exemplary" and "a great friend of mine" who helped steer the military amid a time of great transition at the Pentagon. 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. Hagel, the only Republican on the president's national security team, has served in the job since February 2013. A successor will be named "in short order," an official said to NBC News, but Hagel will stay in the job until his replacement is confirmed. Read »

Was a Ferguson Grand Jury the Best Option?

As businesses in Ferguson, Missouri, and police around the country brace for the grand jury decision on whether or not to indict the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown, experts told NBC News that the legal proceedings could have taken place a different way. Robert McCulloch, the prosecuting attorney, could have made the decision to charge Officer Darren Wilson himself.
