Hagel is a trainwreck. Lets err in favor of competence for Sec DOD. Another choice please. Being a private in a war 45 years ago is not an automatic competence qualifier.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel said Israel is on its way to becoming an apartheid state at a speech at Rutgers in 2010.  Interestingly it was also at Rutgers, in 2007, that Hagel reportedly called the State Department an adjunct of the Israeli foreign ministry -- comments he now disowns and claims no recollection of having made.

But here's the thing: It's interesting that different people keep on reporting having heard similar (anti-Israel) remarks from Hagel.  It's a little bit like when Bill Clinton was running for President in 1992.  All these reports...
