Skip to comments.Hagel 'Doesn't Recall' Remark on Israel Controlling State Dept.
Posted on 02/18/2013 1:46:19 AM PST by Eleutheria5
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that he has accepted a new disclaimer from President Obamas defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) disavowing one of his many offensive statements about the state of Israel.
Graham told Fox News Sunday that he received a new letter from the beleaguered nominee in which Hagel claimed he did not recall the odious statement-- allegedly made during a speech at Rutgers University in 2007-- in which he argued that the State Department is controlled by the Israeli Foreign Ministers office.
Well, if in fact thats true, that would end the matter, Graham said, adding, I just take him at his word unless something new comes along.
I'm glad he answered my question about a very disturbing comment he allegedly made, he told Fox News.

Is there a transcript of the speech?
We have reached the time when Lindsey Graham is making the assault on certain topics.
And of course, backing down on several.
Obama must have some smut on Lindsey Graham.
What a horrible retraction by Graham.
Hagel is a mental midget, a place holder for Obama’s dictatorial power foisted on our military.Hagel has two major missions:
1) to do exactly what Obama says without regard for advice coming from our military command,
2) and to fall on his own sword.
Obama wants these keep-silent, yes-men, cabinet officials such as Hagel and Brennan, for the simple purpose of creating a slow,media supported, silent putsch.
I doubt Obama will step down at the end of his term.
Yeah, there’s fine example of manly fortitude. SC at it’s best.
If we’re willing to pretend that Hagel is not a liar, there is only one logical conclusion with so many major and irrational statements that he cannot recall: A man entering senility has no place in the Cabinet.
For a man who so diligently sniffs McCains flatulence, it is not difficult to see where Grahams retraction comes from.
"A Rutgers University spokesperson told Fox News, there is no video or audio recording or no record of any media coverage of the event."
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
“If were willing to pretend that Hagel is not a liar”
Or it’s just a show and he’s all for the confirmation.
We felt that way about the Klintoon, Candor7!
Our problem is that the dimocRATS have stolen the election machinery, and we have to ensure that the elections of 2014 and 2016 are fair.
Otherwise, we are lost, and CW2 will commence ....................................................................... FRegards
