Hagel: A Fringe Pick That Should Be Rejected

Chuck Hagel

Chuck Hagel

Jack Lew also makes sense as the successor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. Before becoming Obama’s chief of staff, Lew was the director of the Office of Management and Budget and had prior success working with President Clinton advising on fiscal policy.

There are many qualified individuals in both parties who would make a superb secretary of defense and further the interests of the United States. Chuck Hagel is not one of them.

About the Author: Dr. Ben Chouake is president of NORPAC, a non-partisan political action committee whose primary purpose is to support candidates and sitting members of the Senate and House of Representatives who demonstrate a genuine commitment to the strength, security, and survival of Israel.

  1. Even if you could believe that Chuck Hagel has truly changed his beliefs on issues like planning for a military option against Iran's nuclear weapons, the Iranians do not believe such an unlikely truth.

    Iran’s English language propaganda arm said last week that the choice of Chuck Hagel for secretary of Defense indicates that the United States would allow Iran to get a nuclear bomb rather than confront the Islamic Republic. The Iranians used a former Democratic Senator, Mike Gravel, as the centerpiece of their report.

    This confirmation would make success in negotiating an end to their program much more difficult as they are less likely to be pressured by the military threat.

    I hope one Senator will do the right thing and filabuster this horrible choice and make a peaceful outcome more probable.

This nomination is problematic and should be declined. Hagel’s record, at least as it relates to his potential future possible responsibilities, can accurately be described as fringe.
