VA Chief Shinseki resigns


AP Veterans Health Care

WASHINGTON — President Obama said Friday that Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki will resign in the wake of systemic problems with the health care for veterans.
Obama said he regretted accepting the resignation, but "the VA needs new leadership" and he agreed with Shinseki that he has become a distraction.
"We don't have time for distractions," Obama said. "We need to fix the problem."
Obama spoke after what he called a "serious conversation" with Shinseki amid calls for Shinseki's resignation in the wake of problems at VA hospitals across the country.
