Hidden Hagel 2008 Speech Surfaces: No Attack on Iran Even if Israel Threatened
Breitbart ^ | 2/10/13 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 02/10/2013 10:54:19 AM PST by Nachum

New footage of a speech by Chuck Hagel in 2008 has surfaced, in which the former Senator mocked the idea of continuing the U.S. policy of confronting Iran and supporting Israel. "When I hear the talk about--well you can’t talk with Iran, you can’t talk with Syria and we’re, we should stay where we are and support Israel, and so on, well you miss the point," he told the laughing audience at an event for his book, America: Our Next Chapter.

Hagel added that the U.S. "shouldn't even be thinking about the options of bombing Iran," even in the event of a nuclear attack on Israel, and suggested Israel would be the first to attack Iran with a nuclear weapon.

Hagel told the Senate on Jan. 31 that he could not provide records or video for more than four of the "hundreds" of speeches he had given over the previous five years because they had not been transcribed or recorded:

We have given the committee every copy of every speech that I have that's out there, every video that I have that's out there. On paid speeches, most every one of those paid speeches--in the contract it says that they are private and not videotaped. That wasn't my decision. That was the contract of the group I spoke to. I believe every paid speech I gave I didn't have a prepared text. I gave it extemporaneously, which is something I've been doing for long before I left the Senate.

I wonder whether Hagel like Brennan is a Moslem convert?

Hagel must not be confirmed. Maybe Israel should let Zero know that Hagel is a read line and his confirmation would result in a strike on Iran since the US will clearly never strike Iran no matter what.

My bet is Hagel will drop out for “family” reasons.

I don’t know about that, but they are both Anti-semites, that’s for certain!

Breitbart does it the right way: Attack, attack, attack.

Not wondering, whining, musing, hoping. ATTACK.

Hagel was appointed because he hates Israel. Just like his future boss.

Hey, who says guys like you are fresh out of POTUS candidates?

UpChuck Hagel, hater of all things Jewish and Israeli, is tanned, rested and ready and a LOT more likely to drain Demonrat votes as Mr. Third Party (the new Stormfront candidate).

For extra thrills for folks like you, Hagel has now "evolved" into a certifiable peace creep just like his role model paleoPaulie and also has ceased being a Catholic upon his second marriage. Our RC gain can be yours too!

If you guys work hard at it, Hagel is probably trainable on "constitutional" excuse making to preserve abortion on demand, enact pervert "marriage" and legalize all things hallucinogenic. Maybe you guys can hold your 2016 convention at Woodstock which probably has at least one motel big enough to have six bedrooms and a 10' X 15' convention hall.

Blackelk, you really need to up your insult rhetoric you’re sounding positively out of date or maybe just out of mind. I’d think a long term, big time Progressive Republican booster such as you would have sent a few shekels to Hagel. OTOH, I’d bet you’re a closet Hagel kind of guy.

John Kerry - the medal moron!
John Brennan - brain dead!
Mr. Lew - loose with the truth!

I recall reading somewhere that Brennan had converted to Islam during his attendance at American Univ. in Cairo Egypt. This would have been before his getting into government I believe when Reagan was POTUSA. Do you have more specifics? I don’t like or trust the man as to the good for the USA. He probably fits right in with Obama’s intentions and Muslim intentions for the USA.

My theory is that the Chicago cabal that controls Obama extorts cash from foreign powers—among other entities—in exchange for favorable U.S. policy. One of their clients, Iran, has chosen Chuck Hagel as the next defense secretary.

The left couldn’t hope for a “better” SOS. How wonderful that this nutjob was/is a Republican. In nominating him Obama has avoided the harsher fallout that would have occurred if he had nominated a democrat of the same ilk.

Hagel personnifies the problem with the GOP. The Republicans have too many Hagels, and it causes us to loose elections. Everyone talks about how “brain dead” the RAT voters are. I submit that for guys like Hagel to be Republilcan office holders, there are a lot of “brain dead” Pubbies too!

I see a variation on this theme. I see Obama and his regime being totally beholden and in the tank for Mid Eastern powers because they illegally contributed vast sums to Obama’s election campaign (primarily via the Internet) and Obama is an owned man. He must jump to their tune or they could rat him out at any moment as to how they financed his election. He was and is our Manchurian candidate. It was easy for him to acquiesce to their blackmail as he thinks just like them anyway and has a Muzzie mindset.
