Senator Burr Releases Statement on Secretary Hagel's Resignation

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement regarding Secretary Hagel's resignation:

"It is clear that Secretary Hagel is taking the fall for the Administration's mismanagement of the international challenges facing our nation, from Ebola to ISIL and the lingering questions about our future role in Afghanistan. Rather than looking across the Potomac to find someone to blame, the President should be looking at his own inner circle - something it is clear Secretary Hagel was never a part of."
