Hagel makes even Bnai Brith queazy

Even Bnai Brith is urging Senators to think carefully before voting for Chuck Hagel.
B’nai B’rith International remains concerned with many aspects of former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel’s responses to questions during his confirmation hearing for the position of secretary of defense. Since then, more questions have been raised about Hagel’s views on a number of important issues.

During the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Hagel did not assuage our reservations on how he would approach such topics as terrorism, Iran and Israel. We urge all Senators, as they prepare to vote, to carefully review Hagel’s record and hearing responses to determine his qualifications for the post.

We are concerned that Hagel, unlike the vast majority of his Senate colleagues, underestimates the threat of the Iran-backed terrorist group Hezbollah.
Unfortunately, this all may be too little too late. The time to oppose Hagel was when he was nominated, but nearly all of the mainstream Jewish organizations were too busy falling into lockstep with the Obama administration.
