Just ahead of the Senate vote on the nomination of Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary, B'nai B'rith International has released the following statement:
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.
