How To Bury The News That The Iran Nuclear Talks Failed
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's resignation was announced on Monday, amid reports he was ousted after an ineffectual tenure. (Also, the Iran nuclear talks will be extended seven more months.)
1. On Sunday, reports first began that a deal with Iran over its nuclear program would not be reached and the talks would likely be extended. On Monday morning, the extension is confirmed around 8 a.m.
