President Obama's nominee to be Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, failed miserably when faced with hard questions from the Senate Armed Forces Committee today. He could not, or refused to, answer for his past anti-Israel and seemingly pro-Iran positions. Instead he only offered confirmation that he should not be the Secretary of Defense.

Today's hearing proved without a doubt we must stop Hagel from being our next Secretary of Defense.

Hagel Calls Ahmadinejad's Government "elected, legitimate."

Hagel was trying to defend his refusal to vote to label the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization. In doing so he called Iran several times as an "elected, legitimate government," and again said the Iranian regime was a "legitimate, independent government."

It was a slip or he wasn't thinking, but it shows his disposition towards Iran that we have disturbingly seen several times. It is outrageous to legitimize a government led by a madman like Ahmadinejad, who has publicly denied the holocaust ever occurred, and called for the state of Israel to be "wiped off the map." 

If Hagel thinks that kind of conduct passes as 'legitimate government' then we'd hate to see how he would react as an ambassador of American interests abroad.

Hagel Agreed, in 2009 Interview, America is "the World's Bully"

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) literally blew Hagel out of the water when he played a very damning quote of Hagel conducting a 2009 interview on Al-Jazeera News wherein Hagel AGREED WITH an e-mailed comment from a woman who identified the United States as "the World's Bully."

Cruz played the soundbyte for the whole committee and all attendees to hear for themselves:
