Eric Cantor: ‘Hagel’s Incendiary Views of Israel Are Only the Tip of the Iceberg’
by News Editor
Weekly Standard – House majority leader Eric Cantor blasts the nomination of Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense in a statement:
“I am profoundly concerned and disappointed by President Obama’s nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel to be Secretary of Defense. Recent reporting has made clear that Senator Hagel’s views and inflammatory statements about Israel are well outside the mainstream and raise well-founded doubts that he can be trusted to manage the special relationship the United States shares with our greatest Middle East ally.
