Why is it now suggested that Hagel believes Israel controls the US State Department?
Why is a five-year old comment just now being brought to light? I do not like the US State Department. Too often they represent foreigners, but they are only supposed to represent US citizens.
BUT, I have not alleged that the State Department is controlled by a foreign government.
Should President Obama immediately pull this nomination?
I am not sure I would support his immediate dismissal, but, and I guess this is a big but, what is claimed about him makes me uncomfortable. I think the State Department would find my leadership difficult. But, I really think they would revolt working with and around someone like Hagel.
But, I also think this sounds like dirty politics. The kind of dirty politics the progressives always use to destroy political nominees.
So, do I want the progressives to destroy another political career?
But, we must go back to the bigger question: Should President Obama immediately pull this nomination?
What do you think?
