Why the War Party Fears Hagel

The quote I cited above is one from a list Kristol put together on why Hagel shouldn't be nominated. Kristol considers this to be some sort of treason when in reality it is Kristol and his ilk who are the real traitors. They are putting a foreign nation a head of this one.
In the fortnight since Chuck Hagel's name was floated for secretary of defense, we have witnessed Washington at its worst.

Who is Chuck Hagel?

Born in North Platte, Neb., he was a squad leader in Vietnam, twice wounded, who came home to work in Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign, was twice elected U.S. senator, and is chairman of the Atlantic Council and co-chair of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.

To The Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol, however, Hagel is a man "out on the fringes," who has a decade-long record of "hostility to Israel" and is "pro-appeasement-of-Iran."
