Hagel to be nominated on Monday?
Reports from a number of sources indicate that key members of the American Jewish community have been informed by the White House that President Hussein Obama intends on Monday to nominate anti-Semite Chuck Hagel to be US Secretary of Defense. However, in a Saturday night interview with Jewish talk show host Zev Brenner, Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice President of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, an umbrella group that represents 50 of America’s largest Jewish organizations, and one of the people most likely to be called, said he had not been called and that he was not aware of anyone else that had been. Nevertheless, Hoenlein expects the nomination to move ahead.
Let's go to the videotape to hear the interview. More after the interview.
Note the swipe at Tom Friedman....Do you think the White House encouraged Friedman to write that column for Hagel?
If Hagel is going to be defeated, it looks like it's going to be up to the bloggers again.
