Senators Ask Hagel Whether the State Dept. Is Controlled By Israel
Weekly Standard ^ | 2/15/13 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 02/15/2013 1:59:16 PM PST by Nachum

Two U.S. senators have written a letter to Chuck Hagel to ask the defense secretary nominee to explain his assertion that "the State Department was becoming an adjunct of the Israeli Foreign Ministry." Hagel, the Washington Free Beacon reported yesterday, made the comment in 2007.

"Dear Senator Hagel," Senators Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte write. "Yesterday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that in a 2007 speech at Rutgers University regarding America's relationship with the Middle East you remarked that 'the State Department was becoming an adjunct of the Israeli Foreign Ministry.' According to notes posted on the internet by a Republican political consultant and supporter of yours, George Ajjan, you made the remarks during the question and answer period following the speech."

The senators attached a copy of the article they reference to the letter they sent to Hagel.

If that happens, he'll be emasculated by continuous scrutiny of his anti Semitic remarks over the years.

“Senators Ask Hagel Whether the State Dept. Is Controlled By Israel”

Correct neighborhood, wrong side of the conflict. Perhaps Riyadh or Muslim Brotherhood are the most recent unofficial influences in the Obama State Department.

Here's what the idiotic, incompetent Senator from Florida has to say about the idiotic, incompetent candidate for Secretary of Defense:

Dear Mr. Jensen:

Thank you for contacting me about the nomination of Chuck Hagel to serve as Secretary of Defense.

Chuck Hagel is a solid former U.S. Senator, a dedicated public servant, and a patriot. I believe he is qualified to be Secretary of Defense, and I support his nomination.

I appreciate your input on this issue. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further concerns.

Sincerely,

Bill Nelson
