HAGEL WILL RESPOND THAT HE:
* Voted to give a total of $38 billion in aid for the Jewish state, along with multiple trips to meet with leaders there.
* Voted at least three times for sanctions against Iran and is a supporter of multilateral sanctions.
* Argue that he has opposed some sanctioning based on specific details, not a broader opposition to sanctions.
Hagel will say that he believes that military action should always be an option but, based on his war experience, insist that it should only be seriously considered after diplomatic options are exhausted.
The only reason Obama wants Hagel is so that a Republican in name will be the one that dismantles the DOD funding. Obama is going to hide behind Hagel for massive defense cuts that the left wants...
LOL! Are you sure you’re not writing copy for Hagel?
Not just Israel, this guy is a dangerous leftist.
