Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak Resigns
Word broke overnight that Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is stepping down. Leland Vittert reported live from Jerusalem on the shocking news. According to Vittert, Barak is trying to leave office on a good note, as his popularity has dwindled over the past couple of years.

Barak says he’s retiring to focus on his personal life.
