Hagel: Not an optionWith news reports suggesting former Senator Chuck Hagel may be nominated for the job of Secretary of Defense, the Emergency Committee for Israel released "Not An Option," a 30-second TV ad that highlights Hagel's troubling record on Iran.
The ad recounts Hagel's numerous votes against sanctions, his opposition to designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, and his view that there is no "viable" military option for preventing a nuclear Iran -- in contrast to President Obama, who insists all options remain on the table.
The ad will air on cable this Thursday and Friday throughout the Washington DC area.
Let's go to the videotape.
Still waiting to hear from Ira Forman on this.
