Chuck Hagel would be the first Secretary of Defense that “has served as a grunt in ground combat. …that’s why he’s wary – maybe much more wary than other politicians – in sending American troops into harm’s way.”(r/politics)
The Israel Lobby is really a God Awful interest group that has given hagel such a bad name… It’s an absolute disgrace.
edit: Anyone interested in reading more here is truly a brilliantly written book about America’s foreign policy concerning Israel and how the AIPAC has been involved with U.S. leaders over the past 4 or 5 decades.
