Obama Secretary of Defense Nominee Chuck Hagel: "People say we're not fighting for oil. Of course we are. They talk about America's national interest. What the hell do you think they're talking about? We're not there for figs."
Obama administration leaks that it will nominate GOP senator Chuck Hagel, an opposer of the Iraq war and one who is less hawkish on Iran, as Secretary of Defense. The pro-Israel right is dissatisfied and is already labeling him an anti-Semite.
"I'm a Republican. We got America into two wars, we’ve done great damage to our economy. To say this new administration has really put America in danger is just folly." Chuck Hagel responding to Dick Cheney
“I’m a United States senator.” Hagel reasoned. “I’m not an Israeli senator.” That, to the extreme right, makes him an anti-Semite.
