If former Senator Chuck Hagel, who will be heading to confirmation hearings on Thursday, is confirmed, he will become the first former enlisted soldier to lead the Pentagon. As a young man, he served as a sergeant, a noncommissioned officer with the infantry in Vietnam, earning two Purple Hearts and the coveted Combat Infantryman Badge.

  2. The RATE at which you post things that concern Israel and Jews is amazing.

    Israel is .2% of the world's population and yet that seems to be the only issue that concerns you (in a bash israel/jews way)

      Israel today, in it's own interests stopped the transfer of sa17's to hezbollah

      How that concerns America? 6000 miles away? who knows.

      Obama was withdrawn our carriers, has excused 22 nations from sanctions with Iran and has not lifted a finger to stop Iran in Lebanon, Syria, the Sinai or anywhere else for that matter. Iran KNOWS Obama supports them hardly is concerned about being "dragged" into war.

    Iran will get its bomb, unless Israel intervenes.

      UPDATE: Asked by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) to clarify his remarks, Hagel said he did not mean to say Iran was a “legitimate” government per se, but rather a “recognized” entity — a member of the United Nations, for example. “That’s what I should have said,” Hagel told Gillibrand.

      Being fair to all concerned.

    2. Further fairness -

      “Given that Iran, the people — I’m quoting right now from Iran — people of the Middle East, the Muslim region and North Africa, people of these regions hate America from the bottom of their heart,” said Inhofe. “It further said Israel is a cancerous tumor in the heart of the Islamic world. They further said Iran’s warriors are ready and willing to wipe Israel off the map. The question I’d like to ask you, and you can answer for the record if you’d like, why do you think the Iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be the Secretary of Defense?”

      Hagel responded, “I have a difficult enough time with American politics, Senator. I have no idea, but thank you. And I’ll be glad to respond further for the record.”

    I feel the same, Gag.

    He's Obama's pick and I don't see a reason to try to deny it. Obama picked him because Hagel's his views mesh with his own. If there are differences, it will be the presidents views that prevail. It would be the same regardless of who Obama picked. I would think his success or failure will be judged on how well he is able to manage the decrease in military spending that is inevitible.

    Gates, IMO, was the only decent SOD we have seen in some time and there are many who question some of his calls.

  16. It doesn't matter at all. Barky calls the shots. If not Hagel some other.

    Here though is a lady from the Washington Post who does think it matters -

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/01/30/the-best-argument-against-chuck-hagel-his-2009-speech/?hpid=z3

    Aside from the falsehoods, extreme statements and platitudes, one is struck by the absolute absence of any smart, cogent thinking or any sound judgment about events in the region. Why in the world would he be considered fit for the job of secretary of defense? And what guarantee do any of the senators have that once in office he won’t revert to the views he propounded so frequently and openly as he did in his 2009 speech? This nomination is not even a close call for those who see their role as more than a rubber stamp for a president who thinks Hagel is a foreign-policy guru.

    "Why in the world would he be considered fit for the job of secretary of defense?"

    Medals on the chest, of course, which he didn't throw away like John Kerry who accused all Vietnam vets of acting like Genghis Khan.

    7. Amendment accepted.

      Look here Quirk -

      But these words aside, he did nothing to answer whether he thought Israel’s friends have a disproportionate influence on the United States or whether its actions resulted in bad policy. Indeed, his silence on that point and his inability to cite a single member of Congress who had been intimidated or a single stupid policy enacted as a result of such pressure showed just how vicious and insulting that remark was. It also made it clear that despite his constant reiteration of his support for Israel and its qualitative military edge, he had not really changed his extreme views about the Middle East.

      Not sure where you get the ill-mannered from; however, it is obvious he is playing the political game as do all of these nominees, trying to cover up for not necessarily untrue but rather unpolitic statements thy have made in the past.

      That he lacks the courage to defend his actual views is an indictment of his character. What's new?

      The statement,

      Indeed, his silence on that point and his inability to cite a single member of Congress who had been intimidated or a single stupid policy enacted as a result of such pressure showed just how vicious and insulting that remark was.

      childish prattle.

      What member of Congress would admit to being intimidated by the Jewish lobby. Which of the numerous stupid policies that have been inacted can be proven to be the sole result of Jewish pressure. Get real.

      In Las Vegas, President Obama reminded most American citizens that they were descended from immigrants themselves. Obama warned that the issue was an emotional one, but that it was important for Americans to not view it as “us versus them.” “It’s really important to remember our history,” Obama continued. “Unless you were one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from someplace else, somebody brought you,” he said.
